Despite bad puns (what a cluster duck!), ruffled feathers and quizzical comments, the touring Giant Rubber Duck will be visiting Toronto to celebrate Canada’s country’s 150th birthday this year at HTO Park.
The six-storey-tall, 13,600-kilogram yellow Instagrammable duck is being brought to Toronto by the Redpath Waterfront Festival.
Whether you’re for or against this massive floating bath toy, you may still want to catch a glimpse of it because, let’s face it the kids will love it! The “World’s Largest Rubber Duck,” makes its first visit to Canada to join in the Canada 150 celebrations From July 1-3.
Luckily there’s a whole lot more to do than snap selfies with the this fine unfeathered friend at the fest.
