World’s Largest Rubber Duck to Arrive in Delaware River: 
Another Feather in the Cap for 
Tall Ships® Philadelphia Camden

Philadelphia, PA/Camden, NJ - May 27, 2015 - The World’s Largest Rubber Duck didn’t exactly fly south for the winter, but after a much needed off-season rest the cuddly floating fowl will abandon its nest and turn the Delaware River into the world’s largest bathtub during the much anticipated Tall Ships® Philadelphia Camden 2015.

The largest Tall Ships® event of year countrywide that combines a dozen awe-inspiring Tall Ships® with an abundance of festival attractions already has locals and future visitors alike clamoring for the opening date of June 25. The addition of the super-sized bath toy adds to that anticipation.

“It’s just fun, pure and simple,” states Craig Samborski, executive producer of Tall Ships® Philadelphia Camden. “The World’s Largest Rubber Duck inspires us to enjoy the world’s waterfronts and conserve our natural resources for future ducklings.”

Delaware River’s unique two-sided waterfront and the increased accessibility it provides for onlookers makes it the ideal venue to show off the duck’s larger-than-life proportions. 61’ tall and 11 tons to be exact.

Circling the duck of course will be the main attraction, 12 beautifully crafted Tall Ships® hailing from across the globe such as the French frigate Hermione or the Tall Ship Sagres of Portugal.

A plethora of additional attractions will also be on hand such as historic reenactments, live music, dance, youth sail training, a craft beer garden and the region’s finest fare.

Ticket prices for the event range from the $7.00 festival admission to $85 sailing passes.

The event is created by a collaboration of four Delaware waterfront organizations: the Delaware River Waterfront Corporation, Coopers Ferry Partnership, Adventure Aquarium and Independence Seaport Museum.

Tall Ships® Philadelphia Camden is slated for June 25-28, 2015. For tickets www.tallshipsphiladelphia.com or 877-4FLY-TIX.
