Join the Friends of the Public Garden in Boston’s most beautiful parks for Duckling Day! A beloved Mother’s Day tradition for more than 30 years, the event celebrates the children’s classic book Make Way for Ducklings by Robert McCloskey. Your family can join hundreds of children parading through Boston’s most picturesque parks, dressed like characters from the story. Led by the Harvard University Marching Band, the parade begins in Boston Common and ends in the Public Garden near the famous Make Way for Ducklings sculptures. It’s the most adorable event in all of Boston!
Before the Parade at noon, come to Playtime on the Common, a vibrant array of family entertainment from 10 a.m.–noon. All activities are included with event admission:
