As a former high school color guard member turned percussionist turned trumpet player (impressive confession, no?), I have a soft spot in my heart for pomp and circumstance. Tomorrow (Sunday, May 13) you can join families in Boston’s annual Duckling Day Parade. Kids are invited to come decked out in ducky duds; the parade retraces the Mallard family’s steps from Robert McCloskey’s Make Way for Ducklings.
The parade starts at noon; registration ($25 per family) begins at 11 am on the Boston Common, across from the State House.
