PITTSBURGH INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL OF FIRSTS
THE RUBBER DUCK
Over a million admirers flocked to Point State Park in downtown Pittsburgh for a glimpse of the city’s world-famous Rubber Duck inflatable sculpture.
The 40-foot rubber duck, the brainbird of Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman that has been floating in the Allegheny River just off of Point State Park the past few weeks, flew out-of-town at 11 p.m. Sunday, October 20th after the Steelers beat the Ravens.
