A beloved tradition for over 20 years, Duckling Day celebrates the children’s classic book Make Way for Ducklings by Robert McCloskey. Every year, over 1,000 children meet up and parade through Boston’s most picturesque parks, dressed like characters from the story. Led by the Harvard Marching Band, the parade will begin in the Boston Common at the Parkman Bandstand and end in the Public Garden near the famous Make Way for Ducklings sculptures. Bring your camera – the parade is possibly the most adorable thing you’ll ever see!

Prior to the parade there will be plenty of family entertainment including face painters, a magician, and puppet show.
The registration fee is $35 per family in advance and $40 per family the day of the event. Each child who registers will
receive a special goodie bag filled with Duckling Day toys. Hide
