The Giant Rubber Ducky Visits Hong Kong!

I first reported on the giant rubber ducky back in January when it visited Sydney Harbour,  you can find that story HERE

It was like something out of a Ducks Unlimited member’s dreams: A 54-foot-tall rubber duck sailed into a Hong Kong harbor on Thursday.

Hundreds gathered at Victoria Harbour to cheer the arrival of the duck, which was designed by Dutch artist Flortentijn Hofman. The enormous duckling was built in 2007 and has since traveled to 13 cities and nine countries.

"My sculptures cause an uproar, astonishment and put a smile on your face," Hoffman told the Daily Mail. "They give people a break from their daily routines. Passers-by stop in front of them and enter into conversation with other spectators. People are making contact with each other again."
