The Ottawa Citizen is reporting that in just over a month the Ontario 150 Tour, a celebration of Ontario’s 150th anniversary, will kick off in Toronto with Royal Canadian Navy ships, competitive lumberjacks and a replica 30,000-pound rubber duck.

Why a giant rubber duck?  Well, the replica duck has been on a world tour since 2007, drawing massive crowds, and is a huge hit with kids and adults alike.

On June 30th, the William Lyon Mackenzie Fireboat will escort the giant rubber duck to Toronto as part of the weekend-long celebration.

If you miss the festivities in Toronto, the duck will also be making appearances in Midland, Brockville, Amherstburg and Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario.

This will surely be a hit in the city, and we expect your Instagram feed to be buried with hilarious pics of people with the giant rubber duck.

While some people may think that a stunt like this is pure frivolousness (the entire tour is expected to cost Ontario $200,000), you only turn 150 once, right?
