From June 19 to 21, people can ogle the six-storey, 13,000-kilogram 'Mama Duck,' which will be on display during the Redpath Waterfront Festival.

"The quack is back," festival organizers said in a news release on Monday, which is also National Rubber Ducky Day.

Last year the event attracted more than 750,000 visitors.

Last year, the giant duck helped generate more than $7.6 million for the local economy, according to organizers.
