A Six-Story Rubber Ducky Is Slated To Float The Trinity River In Fort Worth This Weekend — And It’s Bringing A Mission Of Spreading Kindness With It.

A giant, rubber, kindness-spreading-duck is gearing up to make a splash in Fort Worth this weekend.

Originally scheduled to come to town on July 23 but since delayed to an October 29, 30 and 31 arrival because of COVID-19 complications, a six-story inflatable duck — ostensibly the largest rubber ducky in the world — will be taking a dip in the Trinity River as part of a rebranded Halloween spooktacular.

So what’s this duck’s deal?

Well, when this momma duck arrives — complete with a smaller duckling known as Timmy in tow — it will be doing so while spreading the three pillars of the Fort Worth-based Kindness Duck organization’s mission behind bringing it to town. And those are? To plant, share and grow kindness — something we should all keep in mind when fighting rush hour traffic on 1-30.

Also incredibly kind? Seeing this massive-ass duck floating along the Trinity River is free to anyone who wants to see it over the course of the “Big #KindnessDuck Party” and its three-day run.

If you want to spread the love with your own cash money at the event, though, there are of course a number of ways to do so. VIP and reserved parking packages are available for purchase, there’ll be pay-to-play carnival games for attendees to engage in along the banks of Trinity Park and there will also be various rows of vendors slinging wares — including food trucks on-site and even booths where attendees can purchase their own miniature rubber duckies. A portion of all proceeds from all of these ventures will go to the Kindness Duck group and then being spread out among a variety of local Fort Worth charities.

Beyond a way to spruce up your ‘gram game, we could sure all use some kindness right now, and this event ain’t ducking around.
