Best of Boston

2024 Best Kid-Friendly Festival

Duckling Day

Boston parents love this event, and for good reason. It’s centered around the beloved storybook Make Way for Ducklings (not a character their little ones know from a screen). It takes place in — and helps support — the Public Garden and Common. And, honestly, what’s cuter than kids dressed up as ducklings? Oh yeah, and there’s lots to make the little ones happy, too, including goody bags, live music, magic, and, of course, marching in a parade.
