Fun Facts Friday!

There are a lot of logistics that go into the Ken-Ducky Derby Festival!  Dropping almost 30,000 ducks into the Ohio River talks lots of help from lots of friends.  We work closely with ACL, Jeffboat, CGB Enterprises, UPS and Heritage to tag, dump and collect the ducks.  We have had several meetings, and I learned a lot of fun facts about the Ohio River….Happy Friday!

  • The Ohio River is 981 miles long, starting at the confluence of the Allegheny and the    Monongahela Rivers in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and ending in Cairo, Illinois, where it    flows into the Mississippi River.
  • The Ohio River flows through or borders six states: Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio,    Pennsylvania, and West Virginia. In addition, water from parts of New York, Virginia, North    Carolina, Tennessee and Alabama drain into tributaries that empty into the Ohio.
  • The Ohio River is the source of drinking water for more than three million people.
  • Over 25 million people, almost 10% of the US population, live in the Ohio River Basin.
  • Did you know that this Ohio River is at its widest right here in Louisville!
