The Rubber Duck, a floating installation piece by Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman, has been traveling the world for the past couple of years, showing up in locations like Taiwan, Osaka, Hong Kong, Sydney, and the United States. In a continuation of this giant 54′ tall inflatable bird’s quest across the globe, the Rubber Duck made its debut appearance last week in Los Angeles! The Rubber Duck was a star attraction in Los Angeles’ Tall Ships Festival, which lasted from August 20th to the 24th, and attracted a lot of media attention as well as admiration from spectators and fans.

The duck, which was originally intended to leave the harbor following the end of the Tall Ships Festival, made such a huge splash with spectators and fans that city officials have decided to keep the Rubber Duck on display at the Port of Los Angeles until September 6th! Events have also been planned alongside the duck’s extended stay at the port, including photo ops, dress-up events, and more! The Rubber Duck is now scheduled to leave the Port of Los Angeles on September 6th, so make sure to stop by if you can!
