PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — On Friday afternoon, it happened.

The first sighting of the giant Rubber Duck for the folks waiting at The Point.

It made its way under the West End Bridge, past the fountain, under the Fort Duquesne Bridge and up the Allegheny River to a crowd of waiting fans.

Some people came dressed in duck garb to show their support, many brought their cameras and others quacked and chanted for the giant bird.

Everyone seems excited about the duck.

“It’s great! I can’t believe that!” said one excited person.

The duck’s creator couldn’t be more thrilled with Pittsburgh’s response.

“It’s not a gimmick,” artist Florentijn Hofman said. “It’s funny, but it’s about joy and happiness. It’s also about connecting  people all over the globe.”
