What the Duck?

Click 4 pixSometimes in Aspen it's all about the kiddies.  The Aspen Rotary Club hosted their 21st Annual DUCKY DERBY by dumping more than 10,000 rubber duckies into the Rio Grande River at No Problem Bridge.  The event raises well over $100,000 for Aspen's kids and their causes.  The Duck Derby and corresponding carnival in Rio Grande Park teaches kids about money, sales and responsibility.  Every $10 Duck entrant sold results in $9 going to a designated cause of the seller's choosing.  While AspenSpin has never entered into the parenting space...a few sick pix won't hurt anybody.

On Sunday The Aspen Science Center and Aspen Center for Physics hosted the ASPEN SCIENCE FESTIVAL.   Exhibits featuring gravity and waves, solar, bio fuel, biology and performances from Dr. KaBoom and Mr. Freeze kept the youngsters and their handlers enthralled.  A HUGE crowd of kiddies, parents, grandparents, nannies, dogs got to experience science in action.
