Many families celebrated Mother’s Day at the annual Duckling Day parade at the Public Garden on Sunday.
The beloved tradition — put on by the Friends of the Public Garden in association with the City of Boston Parks and Recreation Department — has taken place annually for more than three decades, according to organizers. More than 1,000 people attend each year, organizers said.
For the uninitiated, children dress up as characters from Robert McCloskey’s classic “Make Way for Ducklings” children’s book during the event.
