This beloved annual event on Mother’s Day celebrates the classic children’s story Make Way for Ducklings, about a pair of mallard ducks who decide to raise their family on the island of the Boston Public Garden lagoon and the family’s adventures getting there.
Each year, over a thousand children dressed as their favorite characters from the story gather on the Common to enjoy face painting, music making, clowns, and other entertainment before marching through Beacon Hill behind the Harvard Band to the Public Garden. Mayor Menino and President Emeritus Henry Lee will greet families at the end of the parade, and actors from the Wheelock Family Theater will read the beloved book by Robert McCloskey.
Registration and entertainment on the Common begin at 10:30 am at the base of the Shaw Memorial, across Beacon Street from the State House, and the parade begins at noon.
There is a $35 donation per family ($40 the day of the event). Register online
