    LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Port of Los Angeles is welcoming an unusual visitor — the world’s biggest bath toy.

    A 60-foot-tall rubber duck sailed into port Wednesday to kick off the Tall Ships Festival LA. It will remain in the harbor through Sunday.

    Dutch artist Florentijn (FLOR‘-ihn-tyn) Hofman debuted the duck in 2007 and versions of it have been seen around the world in places including China, Hong Kong and New Zealand.

    A festival spokesman says the duck is just one of the features of the weeklong event that comes to LA every three years.
