Giant Rubber Duck Quacking in Steel City


A version of Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman giant "Rubber Duckie" is

towed up the Ohio River under the West End Bridge for its debut in

Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh's duck is the first "Made-in-the-USA" version of

the Dutch artist's creation. The duck's arrival kicks off the month-long

Pittsburgh International Festival of Firsts, which features theater,

dance, music and visual arts from around the world. After the opening

night the duck will be moored near the city's two major sports stadiums

until late October.
