LI’s Big Duck Gets Dressed up for The Holidays

The Big Duck lighting is a Long Island tradition

Long Island’s Big Duck is ready for its close-up.

The 15-foot likeness of a friendly fowl is getting its holiday dressing on Wednesday night. The annual lighting ceremony is in Flanders.


The Big Duck was built in 1931 as a tribute to Long Island duck farming. The structure is on the national Register of Historic Places and draws thousands of tourists each year.

The roadside quacker features a duck-themed gift shop in its belly.
