The top-secret home of rubber ducks in Summit County

Next with Kyle Clark. 9NEWS at 6 p.m. 09/06/16.

Next Question: Where do they keep those thousands of rubber ducks used in the Breckenridge duck race during the rest of the year?

Don't worry, Betsy Horkovich. We found the answer.

Well, sort of.

They're stored in an undisclosed, very top secret warehouse in Summit County. The Summit Foundation, the non-profit the duck race raises money for, won't tell us where.

That's because the rubber ducks are expensive. They're 4 bucks each.

And there are close to 16,000 of them.

And they don't want anyone to steal them.

Fifty volunteers meticulously put 125 of them in each and every bin, after their annual float down the Blue River in Breckenridge every Labor Day weekend.

So, there you have it.

This year, the duck race raised more than 100 thousand dollars for the non profit "The Summit Foundation."
