Pioneer Square Trucks and Ducks

Something special is happening in Pioneer Square. Crews of rubber ducks in construction gear along with their work vehicles are being spotted around Pioneer Square. The ducks have arrived with their heavy equipment to celebrate neighborhood upgrade progress and to advertise a special event: Pioneer Square Trucks and Ducks!

We encourage you to follow the ducks’ lead and celebrate in three ways:

1) Create your own homemade construction vehicle replica! Your replica can be simple or complex, stationary or moving, realistic or stylized. Customize, use your imagination, and be creative! Sign up HERE to register your creation.

2) Come to Pioneer Park (100 Yesler Way) at lunchtime on October 16th, 2018 with your construction vehicle replica! Enter your creation to be evaluated by a panel of judges for a chance to win a title and one of three special prize bags!

3) Post social media photos of trucks and ducks you find in the neighborhood! Tag them #PSQTRUCKSandDUCKS!
