Virtual Duckling Day
May 9 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pmfree
Please join us for a live “virtual” Duckling Day on Facebook! Duckling Day celebrates mothers everywhere! Inspired by the tenacity of Mrs. Mallard from the famous Make Way For Ducklings, the official children’s book of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, everyone is invited to join the Friends for its signature virtual reading beginning at 12 pm, broadcast our Facebook page. We have assembled an all-star cast to share this timeless story, including:
– First Lady Lauren Baker
– Senator Elizabeth Warren
– Jeff Kinney, author of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series
– WCVB’s Rhondella Richardson
– Human helpers sharing the story with furry and feathered friends at the Franklin Park Zoo and the NEAQ
Following the reading, the program will continue with engaging and delightful entertainment for the entire family. Karen K and the Jitterbugs will perform their hit song “Get Down” with some special Duckling Day themed words, and Bonaparte the Magician will perform some duckling magic!
Send in photos of you, your family, or any ducklings enjoying Duckling Day. Please submit your photos here with your name and the year (guessing is allowed!) and we’ll include it in the social media celebration.
