Giant Rubber Duck
Port Angeles, Washington
W Lauridsen Blvd @ S F St
This giant 65-foot-tall rubber duck landed in Port Angeles for a short time in 2014, but it was there for a good cause: to draw attention to the annual Great Olympic Peninsula Duck Derby. Every year people buy tickets that represent numbered rubber ducks. Tens of thousands of these ducks are then entered into a rubber duck race. The person holding the ticket for the winning duck gets the grand prize, a Toyota in 2014. There are more than 40 additional winners of smaller prizes. The proceeds go to support the Olympic Medical Center Foundation and Sequim Rotary Club.
Giant Quacky, the world's largest duck, was on hand as the first stop on its 2014 tour because creator/owner Great American Merchandise and Events wanted to recognize the Great Olympic Peninsula Duck Derby for selling "more ducks per capita by far" than any other such race in the world.
