Nevada Humane Society's Duck Race & Festival took over Wingfield Park Sunday in one of Reno's most popular events to raise money for homeless pets.

Attendees purchased rubber ducks for $5 a piece, then raced them down the Truckee River for prizes. All money raised from the rubber ducks benefits local pets in need. The race started at 4 p.m., but the festival ran from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The free event included live entertainment, clowns, carnival games, vendors and refreshments. There were also dogs and cats from the Nevada Humane Society in need of forever homes.
