THIS. IS. HUGE. The Rubber Ducky art installation by Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman left Hong Kong and landed in…PITTSBURGH!!!!!!!!!!! Yeah, Pittsburgh! Needless to say, numerous U.S. cities are quite jealous that we are the first American city to get the Duck, but I like to think that we are just that awesome.

It is a part of the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust’s Pittsburgh International Festival of Firsts.
Ducky is “docked” in the Allegheny River by Point State Park and was welcomed with a huge “Launch Party” (that, sadly, I had to work during and missed). He shall be our big yellow guest until the end of October.
Lets just say that this thing is so *ducking* cute that I purchased the small replica Ducky…and found a prime photo opp! DOUBLE DUCKS!
Clearly, it was a gorgeous autumn day in Pittsburgh and a perfect day to visit the Duck.
