PITTSBURGH (KDKA) - We have made it to the weekend and we're here to help you plan a fun one! 

It's shaping up to be nice outside so we've got a couple of events to get you out to enjoy the weather. 

Steel City Duck Derby

Let's start in Allegheny Commons Park with the Steel City Duck Derby. 

Around 10,000 rubber ducks will swim their way to the finish line in Lake Elizabeth and you can "adopt" a duck to race in the derby to win prizes!

There will also be food, music, and other games going on. 

It all gets going tomorrow morning at 11 a.m. with the derby set for 1 p.m.
