The third annual Paws Across the Water Duck Race took place Saturday at Barefoot Landing in North Myrtle Beach.

For the event, 10,000 rubber ducks were dropped into the Intracoastal Waterway to benefit the Humane Society of North Myrtle Beach.

Ducks were purchased before the race, and the winners received donated prizes such as a spa or a weekend vacation.
