The Texas City Independent School District’s Foundation for the Future held its annual Youthfest and Duck Derby in Texas City on Saturday.

The event, now in its 10th year, featured live musical performances by student groups, food, games and, of course, the duck races.

About 5,000 rubber ducks were released to travel down a narrow channel at the event with prizes awarded to the owners of the ducks finishing at the head of the group.

It is the district’s largest fundraiser.
