There were thousands of rubber ducks and dozens of "quacktivities" for visitors over at Cole Park on Saturday.

The South Texas Lighthouse for the Blind hosted its annual Rubber Duck Round-Up, inviting the community to join in some fun by the water.

In its eighth year, the roundup has become something of a tradition in Corpus Christi, and benefits the Lighthouse, which helps visually impaired people find employment.

This year, there’s another goal for funds raised at the event: helping the group to repair its facility after damages from Hurricane Harvey.
