Cornwall Ontario – Many Cornwallites are crying fowl, and heading down the 401 to check out the Big Rubber Duck in Brockville this weekend as the 61 foot cutie will settle on the town’s picturesque waterfront.
Locals can still celebrate the pooping of the geese in Lamoureux Parc. While not as exciting as the duck, it’s more environmentally friendly.
Cornwall Economic and Tourism poobah Bob Peters did not comment for this story.
The Duck will be in beautiful Brockville from today, the 10th, until the 13th. Hotel rooms are booked as the town preps for the impact of the expected 30,000 + tourists to descend on the city to see the duck and attend other festivities.
The City received over $120K in Provincial funding for the three day blast!
Brockville was one of six cities to get the duck for the Ontario 150 festivities. The price tag for the duck drew much criticism from the Patrick Brown Conservatives, but has been popular at its stops.
This is the last nesting and chance to see the Duck.
What do you think Cornwall? Should we have had the duck too? And is it because of our inept MPP Jim McDonell who’s most remembered for comparing the McGuinty government at the time Nazis?
