SALT LAKE CITY – Make a Wish Utah made a splash Saturday with their annual derby, which features rubber duckies.

The fundraising event is in its 26th year and is put on for the benefit of children who are facing potentially deadly diseases.

Those who attended go to mingle with Darth Vader and other costumed characters as thousands of rubber duckies made their way down the lazy river at Seven Peaks.

The owner of the duck that won the derby was given a year-long car lease by Murdock Chevrolet.  Click here for more details on the rubber duck derby.
