The World’s Largest Rubber Duck will soon be headed to Owen Sound.
It is joining the ONTARIO 150 Tour to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday during the summer with stops in Toronto, then Owen Sound, Midland, Sault Ste. Marie, Amherstburg and Brockville.
The first stop in Toronto is on Canada Day weekend, with the big duck stopping in Owen Sound July 7th to the 9th.
It's all part of the ‘Maawanji’iding Festival Canadiana Owen Sound’ which runs from June 30th through July 9th.
The ten-day festival includes two signature weekend events with concerts, shows, and other activities for people of all ages.
Standing 61 feet tall, 79 feet wide, 89 feet long and weighing in at 30,000 pounds, this will be the first time the duck has ever been to Canada.
Bringing the World’s Largest Rubber Duck to Canada has been made possible through the Ontario Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport’s Celebrate Ontario program.
