    BOSTON - Celebrate Mother's Day in the cutest way! 

    The Friends of the Public Garden, in association with the City of Boston Parks and Recreation Department, is celebrating Mother’s Day during its annual Duckling Day event. 

    A fun springtime tradition for more than 30 years, the event celebrates the classic children's book, “Make Way for Ducklings” by Robert McCloskey. 

    Every year, over 1,000 people come by and parade through Boston’s beautiful parks, dressed like characters from the story. 

    The fun starts even before the parade -- with crafts, face painting, a magician, circus games and more. According to the Facebook event by Friends of the Public garden, the parade will begin on the Boston Common at the Parkman Bandstand and end in the Public Garden near the famous Make Way for Ducklings sculpture.
