The Peabody Duck March, dating back to the 1930’s , has become a treasured Memphis tradition that began as a prank after a little too much whiskey by the hotel manager and a friend following a hunting trip. The tradition continues to this day as daily the Peabody ducks are escorted from their home on the top of the Peabody Hotel to the lobby via the elevator. Accompanied by their Duckmaster, the five ducks then proceed across the red carpet to the famed Peabody Hotel marble fountain. At the end of the day the ducks are led ceremoniously back to their rooftop home by their Duck Master to rest for the next day’s procession.
Enjoy the sense of tradition, grandeur, and elegance of the beautiful Peabody Hotel!
