Giant Rubber Ducky!

It's with a heavy heart and great fondness that we say goodbye to the giant rubber ducky. He left Pittsburgh this week after spending a month calling the Allegheny river his bathtub! Thousands of people flocked to the point at the three rivers to see this 40 foot tall quacker. I only got this close:

Twice! lol Though I live in the country now, I am a native Pittsburgher and as such, knew better then to brave the crowds and parking mess at point park. Since my photo is so bad I invite you to visit ducky's Pittsburgh page on FB: Rubber Duck - Pittsburgh, Pa 
and see all the fabulous fan photos and official photos of our ducky mascot.

Ducky sat across the river from PNC Park for a month and brought an amazing string of luck to our Pittsburgh Pirates. We had our best season in 17 years! Way to go buccos! 

Ducky was a lot of fun. People can from neighboring states to visit and it was just a really cool thing to see. He was huge! Like a 4 story building huge! lol Picture a giant blow up yard ornament....40 foot tall. That was ducky. Awesome, right? He's moving on to the next city and hopefully one day he'll be back. Bye ducky! Thanks for visiting!
