Peabody Hotel Ducks

Every morning, at around 11am, dozens of visitors flock to witness the Peabody Hotel's morning ritual. The Peabody Little Rock Ducks leave their Royal Peabody Duck Palace and march their way to the lobby, accompanied by their Duck Master who dons a scarlet and gold trimmed jacket, where a crimson carpet leading to a marble fountain awaits them. It is then that the sound of John Philip Sousa's King Cotton March fills the air and the ducks march one-by-one up the three carpeted stairs and plunge themselves into the fountain, where they remain for the rest of the day, splashing and playing in the water, much to the amusement of hotel guests. At exactly 5pm, the ducks return to their Royal Peabody Duck Palace to feast on a dinner of hand-shredded Romaine lettuce, grated carrots, live worm meals and Peabody Duck Trail Mix. The ritual began in the 1930s when the general manager of the hotel decided to put his live decoy ducks into the fountain after one too many drinks, and has carried on ever since.
