Who’s that Lucky Duck?

Tube the Trinity with Lucky the Duck at Panther Island Pavilion on Saturday, August 5 at the season final of Rockin' the River.

Always smilin’ and tube chillin’ in his vintage-striped bathing suit, Lucky the Duck has been a part of the scenery on the Trinity River for over five years. So, where did he come from and how did he get here?


The giant ducky wearing a cowboy hat floating on an inner tube, earned the students at TCC’s Trinity River Campus first place honors in a 2012 public art contest. Art students at TCC’s Northeast campus and UTA Arlington also participated in the competition. All three Styrofoam works of art were on display at Fort Worth Main Street Arts Festival in April of 2012 and at Mayfest the same year. The contest was created by the Trinity River Vision Authority, to attract attention to the river, as well as a fun art element that has lasted for years.


Look for Lucky the Duck at Panther Island Pavilion on Saturday, August 5. Alongside hundreds of tubers, Lucky will be floatin’ and soakin’ up tunes from Bart Crow, Grady Spencer & The Work, The O’s and more as they take to the Trinity River for the season finale of Rockin’ the River. The more, the merrier – so bring your crew and enjoy the season’s final float with Lucky.
