A Skyscraper-Sized Rubber Duck Is Swimming Into Texas This Weekend

Obligatory everything-is-bigger-in-Texas joke.

In an effort to spread the bright, yellow message of kindness, the Kindness Duck Project is floating a skyscraper-sized, 30,000-pound, rubber duck into Texas this weekend.

Organized by local foundation, the Kindness Duck Project, the titanic-sized waterfowl has found itself on a world tour visiting the likes of Toronto, Los Angeles, and Hong Kong. Back in late July, the duck swam through Texas harboring in Fort Worth for a few days before setting sail once again. %7D”]This weekend, October 29-31, the Godzilla of ducks will return to the banks of the Trinity River in Fort Worth, along with her 10-foot “Baby Duck” in tows.

The display will coincide with a Big #KindnessDuck Party from 10 am to 8 pm on Saturday, October 30 – all in an effort to plant, grow, and share kindness, that are, the three pillars of the organization’s mission.

The festivities are set to include an array of 20 or so food trucks, drinks, games, as well as a hundred local vendors at 2278 River Dr. Around 30 non-profits, including HOPE FAMR, Inc. and Con Mi Madre, will also be on site.


Tickets are free with the options for parking and other bonuses ranging from $30 – $150. The former priced ticket grants entry as well as game and drink coupons, while the VIP package tickets includes entry, $30 in tickets for food, drink, and games, reserved parking permit, as well as a discount for Fort Brewery’s new Tillar St. location.
