Bruce Goodwyn, age 66, sports a festive hat as he retrieves stray rubber ducks during Boulder’s 29th annual EXPAND Duck Race. The race, a local tradition for many Boulder families and businesses, returned Monday as part of the Boulder Creek Hometown Festival after being postponed last May due to high water flow in Boulder Creek. Goodwyn, who lives in the Foothills, said he’s participated in the race for just over 10 years. Proceeds from the event will benefit Exciting Programs Adventures and New Dimensions, a project created through the Boulder Parks and Recreation Department that aims to create recreation opportunities for the disabled community. With perfect blue skies and a large crowd, the postponed race made as big a splash as ever.
Time of event: 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. I arrived at 3:30 p.m., took the photo by 4:14 p.m., and uploaded before 5:30 p.m. Total time: 2 hours.
