The Friends of the Big Duck hosted The Big Duck’s 80th birthday at the Big Duck Ranch in Flanders Saturday. There was a large birthday cake, refreshments, music, games and prizes.
The Big Duck was constructed by the Maurer family in 1931 at the duck farm on West Main Street in Riverhead. It was moved to its current location from Red Creek Park in 2008.[nggallery id=106 template=galleryview]
