Based on the children’s classic Make Way for Ducklings by Robert McCloskey, Duckling Day is an annual event where children and their families retrace the steps of the beloved characters Mr. and Mrs. Mallard and their family of eight ducklings. Children will parade through Beacon Hill dressed like characters from the story and end in the Public Garden near the famous duckling sculptures.
Before the parade there will be plenty of family entertainment including a face painter, balloon artist and a magician. Actors from the Wheelock Family Theater will do a dramatic reading from the book.
Time : Registration at 10:30 a.m.; parade begins at noon
Admission : $35 per family in advance; $40 per family the day of the event
Phone : 617-267-7366
