Update June 5: The ducks, they did fall, and make a great splash.

But who wants to read about it? A video is five times as fun.

Check out one over at Live 5 News; watch here.

First reporting: On Saturday, June 4th, 30,000 rubber ducks will be dropped from the Mark Clark bridge into the Wando River, then race to the finish line at Daniel Island Waterfront Park and Community Pier during The Rotary Club of Daniel Island's fourth annual charity duck race.

Get involved by “adopting” a duck for $10 - the top 30 ducks receive cash prizes with the chance to nab $1 million. The drop is at 11:30 a.m., but the Charleston Duck Race celebrations run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Top ducks will be announced during the post-race party, featuring live music, face painting, jump castles, food vendors, and more.

The Post and Courier has a fun photo gallery from last year's event; hop over and take a gander.
