Toronto’s Redpath Waterfront Festival is getting a big addition this year.
Announced in a press release yesterday, the The World’s Largest Rubber Duck is set to join the ONTARIO 150 Tour to celebrate Canada’s 150 this summer.
From July 1-3, Toronto’s annual summer event will welcome the World’s Largest Rubber Duck as it makes its first trip to Canada.
In case you’re wondering, the duck is 61 feet tall, 79 feet wide, 89 feet long, and weighs in at 30,000 pounds. That’s a lot of rubber duck.
So much duck, in fact, that it won’t be able to stay put in Toronto for long, touring Ontario towns Owen Sound, Sault Ste. Marie, Midland, Amherstburg, and Brockville over the summer as well.
Start getting excited, Toronto.
A selfie with the World’s Largest Rubber Duck doesn’t happen every (bath) day.
