See the duck
The World’s Largest Rubber Duck will land in Fort Worth's Trinity Park as part of the Big #KindnessDuckParty. Weighing in at over 30,000 pounds and more than six stories high, the Duck will take center stage at the Festival, located at Trinity Park. The 61-foot-high, 69-foot-wide, 79-foot-long lovable waterfowl will be on display during the festival hours (see below on page).
Mama Duck, as she is affectionately referred to, will be spreading her love at the event and be available for some Texas-sized selfies. Mama Duck’s baby, Timmy, will also be on hand photo-bombing whenever he can. After you take your pictures with the world's largest rubber duck, stop by the Tarrant County 9-1-1 tent in the children's area nearby the duck, and grab your free 9-1-1 rubber duck. The Fort Worth Museum of Science and History will bring children’s activities. Plus, you can purchase duck feed and feed the real ducks at the Trinity Parks' duck pond. See the map of the event here.
