The World’s Largest Talking Duck Just Landed in Corona, California at The Shop at Dos Lagos
QUACK, QUACK, QUACK…Is it a bird? is it a plane? Or, did the world’s largest talking duck just land in Corona, California at The Shop at Dos Lagos? It did and people are flocking to see it. BOOTS, as it was affectionately named by local residents in a contest, stands nearly 20 feet high and serves as the official goodwill ambassador of The Shops at Dos Lagos.
A beautiful creature designed by local artist Alan Silva, BOOTS is also extremely intelligent and loves to interact with people. Before any concert or show at The Shops at Dos Lagos Amphitheater, kids and adults alike will line up to ask BOOTS questions. With a push of a button, BOOTS has been trained to answer. In just a few short months BOOTS has responded to over 5000 queries. The most popular question comes from diners going to one of the many outstanding eateries located within The Shops at Dos Lagos such as Reunion Kitchen + Drink, Miguels California Mexican Cocina and Wood Ranch. You guessed it; they ask “what should I get to eat.” BOOTS always has an answer.
Ducks have a long history in Corona as Dos Lagos namesake two lakes serve as a popular stop on their annual migration south for the winter. The Shops at Dos Lagos pays tribute to these wonderful waterfowl, not just with BOOTS and 17 other custom duck sculptures throughout the center, but also by preserving their habitat and acting as caretaker for the lakes.
Following a multi-million-dollar renovation and the addition of exciting new restaurants and adventure stores, The Shops at Dos Lagos is the Inland Empire’s essential entertainment, lifestyle and retail destination.
