The Big Duck will turn 90 and all are invited to celebrate on Saturday, July 31 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. — rain date of Sunday, Aug. 1.

The event will features games, raffles and a quack-off contest, and a special guest appearance by East End singer-songwriter Caroline Doctorow — writer of “Big Duck Ramble.” The Long Island Duck Farming Exhibit in the Victorian Barn will also be open to the public on that day.

Admission and parking are free and the raffle proceeds will benefit the Friends of the Duck. For more information about the event, call (631)284-2727 or email [email protected]
