Imagine 18,103 yellow rubber ducks stretching as far as the eye can see. That will be the scene at Warren G. Magnuson Park, overlooking beautiful Lake Washington, on June 5 when Cozi, the online and mobile family calendar and organization service, attempts to set a Guinness World Record by creating the world’s longest line of little yellow rubber ducks.

We all know that keeping your ducks in a row as a family is tough. With school activities, soccer games, carpool schedules, PTA meetings and work, it can be a lot to handle. So we wanted to host an event that puts a fun spin on family organization. More than 18,000 little quackers will stretch a full mile through Magnuson Park on Sunday, June 5.

This historic achievement will be proclaimed at about 1 p.m. on Kite Hill in Magnuson Park, when the row measures precisely one mile and the official record is quacked out loud. To make it official, a certified Guinness World Record adjudicator will be waddling around on-site counting the ducks and certifying the record.
We’d love to have all of our Seattle-area neighbors join us for this event. We’ll start lining up ducks throughout Magnuson Park, so bring your own ducklings of all ages and enjoy a fun-filled day in the park with us to witness rubber-duck history in the making. Rain or shine – but no down jackets, please!
