Have you met Giant Quacky?

NEWPORT, KY (FOX19) -

The Freestore Foodbank welcomes the debut of Giant Quacky, the world's largest inflatable rubber duck to celebrate the upcoming 19th Annual Rubber Duck Regatta.

Giant Quacky is 66 feet tall and 1,100 pounds.

Giant Quacky's temporary home is on the banks of the Ohio River in the City of Newport near Newport on the Levee until Sunday, September 1.

That day, as many as 200,000 rubber ducks will swim in the Ohio River near the Serpentine Wall.

The first prize winner will receive a 2013 Honda Civic Sedan LX, courtesy of Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky Honda Dealers, and possibly $1 million, if their duck is the "KEMBA Million Dollar Duck."

The second prize winner will receive $100 from Kroger every week for a year and five additional winners will receive $500 cash from KEMBA Credit Union.

Ducks are $5 each or six for $25. Be sure to get your ducks for a chance at these really great prizes. 

You can also keep up with Giant Quacky on Twitter (@GiantQuacky).
