The world’s largest rubber duck will return to Toronto this fall, but with a new twist.
It will be part of the 10th annual Redpath Waterfront Trail as an Augmented Reality (AR) show that will feature the £ 30,000 six-story duck that previously floated in our waters in real life in 2017.
Found near Rees WaveDeck, you can resize the famous rubber duck in virtual reality by scanning a QR code. It is actually the fifth AR stop presented by the BIA Waterfront.
Other experiences along the route will simulate “walking on water,” where the waterline once stood, sinks into the industrial past and the future transformation of the boardwalk, and swims with whales.
You will also be able to see various works of art around the tour, including a live graffiti mural by anishinaabe artist Que Rock, concrete and glass sculptures integrated into a water purification system, arc light waves of St. Martin with a moon clock that responds to changing winds and a piece inspired by Octavia Butler.
Local companies such as Pie Bar, Goodman Pub, Amsterdam Brewhouse and Against the Grain offer promotions when you display the route map throughout the route.
There will also be pop-up entertainment on the track every weekend. It should be noted that RA stops look best in daylight.
The route is between Lower Spadina and Lower Sherbourne and only runs from September 17 to October 3, so you only have two weeks to enjoy the majesty of a giant rubber duck (even if only on your phone).
