The rubber duck race season may be over, but that doesn't mean the fun will ever end.
Rubber ducks seem to be everywhere, Pittsburgh fans are petitioning for "Mama Duck" to make an appearance at a Steelers game in honor of quarterback Devlin "Duck" Hodges, who has won his first three starts.
And if you look closely during your next cruise, you might just find a rubber duck tucked away somewhere in the ship. Rubber duck sightings have been reported on ships from Carnival, Royal Caribbean, Norwegian, Princess and Crystal Cruises. As more passengers catch on, the unofficial game of hide-and-seek grows.
Legend has it the trend started in 2018 when Abby, a 10-year-old girl, started hiding away rubber ducks throughout the ship for other passengers to find. There is now a Facebook group devoted to people trying to find these secretly placed rubber ducks.
Those who find the ducks are encouraged to take selfies with them and post them online, also indicating what ship the duck was found on and whether the finder chose to re-hide the duck. The page describes itself as a "cute and entertaining way to have a blast on cruises and brighten other's days," citing Abby as the catalyst for the game.
