Join this beloved Mother's Day tradition! Duckling Day celebrates Make Way for Ducklings, the classic children's book by Robert McCloskey. Every year, over 1,000 children dress as their favorite characters from the story and gather on Boston Common to enjoy face painting, a puppet show, and other entertainment before marching through the Common behind the famous Harvard Band to the Public Garden. New for 2014: the new mayor of Boston, Martin J. Walsh, will continue the tradition of welcoming the ducklings in attendance. Plus - the Knucklebones team will bring their wonderful play equipment to encourage duckling frolicking...while Joint Ventures Physical Therapy will be offering free mini-massages for moms to take a moment to relax. Duckling Day is hosted by the non-profit Friends of the Public Garden. Admission for a family of any size is $35/family in advance, $40/family at the event.
