The Start of the Rubber Duck Race, Fairbanks by fourthwall The Start of the Rubber Duck Race, Fairbanks by fourthwall
The annual Rubber Duck Race in Fairbanks, Alaska involves dumping more than 5,000 rubber duckies into the river. The winners (first duckies down the river) receive cash prizes of various amounts. This is certainly one of the more unique festivals I've been to, and a lot of fun.

I'm curious, why are only a select few duckies have blue collars and most of the others don't?

The collars delineate how much you donated to the race. No collar was $5, pink collars were $10, and blue colors were $25. There were different prizes based on how much you donated.
