Great American Duck Race

This uniquely American event started in 1980 in Deming, New Mexico. Up to 80 live ducks race for cash prizes in an eight-lane chute. There are races that include politicians' heats and a media heat. Other features include a parade, dances, hot-air balloons, an arts and crafts exhibit, a pageant of people dressed like ducks, and a duck contest in which ducks are dressed like people. Race participants come from several states; spectators now number about 20,000, almost double the population of Deming. More...

We humans are hardwired for entertainment, amusement, and fun which gives rise, for a spell, to joy in our hearts.

Seeing the silly antics of animals helps take the edge off of life while we laugh at ourselves through them.
