WNY police departments host lucky duck scavenger hunt

A family of rubber ducks have lost their way in several Western New York parks, and it's up to you to help find them.

CHEEKTOWAGA, N.Y. — Several local police departments are teaming together during the month of August to host a social distancing rubber duck scavenger hunt.

The "Lucky Duck Scavenger Hunt 2020" is being hosted by several Western New York police departments including Cheektowaga, Depew, the Town of Tonawanda, Orchard Park, Kenmore, Lancaster and Lackawanna.

Each police department has hidden rubber ducks in their local parks, and it's up to you to help find them. The event is free and fun for the whole family, and several police departments are offering prizes.

The rules are rather simple, when you locate one of the lucky ducks, take a photo of it and submit the photo to the Lucky Duck Scavenger Hunt Facebook page via Facebook Messenger. Participants are asked to leave the ducks wherever they are found — do not take them from their hiding spots.

The scavenger hunt begins August 1 and goes until August 14.

Additional information about where to find the ducks can be found on the Lucky Duck Scavenger Hunt's official Facebook page and on each individual police department's official Facebook page.
