The Rotary Club of Del Mar Chili & Quackers challenge took place at Del Mar Powerhouse Park Oct. 20. The event featured a fun afternoon at the beach and included chili, hot dogs and beverages, face painting for kids and a steel drum musician before participants headed down to the shore to watch the Del Mar Lifeguards launch a ducky flotilla into the waves. The "adopters" of ducks that floated ashore first won prizes. All proceeds from the duck adoptions and chili tastings benefit the Rotary Club of Del Mar service projects. Visit www.delmarrotary.org.
