He’s in China now.
But soon, you’ll see this guy all around Westport:
The Big Duck is coming here to promote Westport Sunrise Rotary‘s Great Duck Race. The 8th annual event — which funds dozens of charities, around the corner and around the world — is set for June 4.
He’s 23 feet high, 15 feet wide and 15 feet long. He takes 15-20 minutes to be inflated (with an electric pump). When he’s full of air, he weighs 260 pounds.
He’s being shipped from Guangzhou, through the Panama Canal. He should be here in late April.
He’ll be unveiled to club members tomorrow morning. Starting in late April, he’ll pop up all around town.
Maybe even the Duck.
