The exhibition is expected to last about two weeks, and the middle of Tamar Park is a viewing "beautiful spot"
Yellow Duck first came to Hong Kong in 2013 and was exhibited at the Tsim Sha Tsui Marine Terminal waterfront for about a month. After 16 years, the yellow duck has grown from 5.18 metres to 6 metres in height, and this year it has visited Hong Kong with another yellow duck. The yellow ducks will be exhibited from 10 June next to the sea adjacent to Tamar Park, and the exhibition period is expected to take about two weeks, depending on weather conditions.
It can be seen from the seaside in the west of the new wing of the convention and exhibition to Pier 9 and 10 in Central, as well as the waterfront in Tsim Sha Tsui; However, the "beautiful spot" is, of course, the waterfront and observation deck in the middle of Tamar Park, and if too many people watch together, crowd control may be implemented.
The nine-day weather forecast issued by the Observatory on June 6 shows that there is a greater chance of sunshine for three consecutive days from Friday to next Sunday, which is conducive to viewing and filming. (Observatory photo)
