Our giant rubber ducky lantern will be bobbing away in the Te Papa lagoon. Make your way along the waterfront to see this cheeky custom-made character. Keep your eyes peeled for a few (hundred) little yellow ducklings paddling around the pond too!
Some tricky engineering is needed to get this lantern installed in the Te Papa lagoon and make sure it remains safe, secure and stationary. We don’t want a 2m tall duck paddling away!
To make that happen a special team of divers will be hopping into the pond to measure the bottom of the lagoon and install this incredible lantern in the water. They’re also tasked with wrangling the brood of baby rubber ducks in the lagoon to make sure none of them get lost from their mother!
