PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – The day many people have been waiting for is finally here: the arrival of the giant duck.
The 40-foot-tall, 35-foot-wide “rubber duck” hits the waters of the Allegheny River today.
It’s part of the four-week-long Pittsburgh International Festival of Firsts.
To celebrate its arrival, the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust is hosting a bridge party tonight at 5:30 p.m.
It’ll be held on the Sixth Street Bridge with lots of festivities, including a DJ, food and art vendors and special guest appearances.
Around 2 p.m., the duck had already been mostly inflated and could be seen from Mt. Washington, on its way toward downtown.
Will you be going to see the duck?
