Description

Celebrate Mother’s Day in Boston's most beautiful parks at the Duckling Day celebration and parade on Sunday, May 12. A beloved tradition for over 30 years, the event celebrates the children’s classic book Make Way for Ducklings by Robert McCloskey. Every year, hundreds of children parade through Boston’s most picturesque parks, dressed like characters from the story. Led by the Harvard University Marching Band, the parade begins on Boston Common at the Parkman Bandstand and end in the Public Garden near the famous Make Way for Ducklings sculptures. Bring your cameras—this is the most adorable event in all of Boston!


Prior to the parade is Playtime on the Common, a vibrant array of family entertainment from 10 a.m.–noon. All activities are included with event admission: 

• Interactive circus games with Esh Circus Arts

The event is a benefit for the nonprofit Friends of the Public Garden. The registration fee is $35 per family in advance (before May 10) and $40 per family the day of the event. Each child who registers will receive a special goody bag.
