Two 18-metre-tall yellow ducks stood on the seaside of Victoria Harbour west of the exhibition this morning (9th), bathing in the morning water of Victoria Harbour before the sailing ceremony, preparing to swim to the central side of Tamar Park to officially meet Hong Kong people later today. The organisers held a kick-off ceremony at 11 a.m. this morning on the platform in front of Tamar Park, and "Hong Kong 01" warmed up before the launch ceremony of the two yellow ducks on both sides of Victoria Harbour.

After spending the first morning in Victoria Harbour, the organisers held a launching ceremony on the platform in front of Tamar Park, and arranged for the yellow ducks to be transferred to the "New Residence", which was dragged from the current new wing west of the exhibition wing to the exhibition point in front of Tamar Park, in preparation for an official meeting with the public from tomorrow (10th).

Exhibited at Tsim Sha Tsui Marine Terminal in 2013, the duck has grown from 16.5 metres to 18 metres after 6 years, and this year it has returned to Hong Kong with its like-looking partners. It was announced earlier that the Yellow Duck will be exhibited on the adjacent Tamar Park and Central and Western Promenade (Central) from 10 June, and the exhibition period is expected to last up to two weeks, depending on weather conditions.
As for the nearest MTR Admiralty Station to Yellow Duck, it has been transformed into a limited-time "Rubber Duck Themed Station" from now on, with Entrance E becoming a "Rubber Duck Theme Exit", and a 6-metre-high giant glass skylight has been transformed into a fun duck face. Traces of rubber ducks can also be seen in many places in the station, such as rubber duck footprints and water droplets.
