THE BIGGEST STARS IN MEMPHIS QUACK! THE PEABODY MARCHING DUCKS


One of the very coolest things I ever witnessed in my life were the Marching Ducks at the Peabody Hotel in Memphis Tennessee.  I stayed there twice while working in town at the Cooke Convention Center in the late 1980s.  Twice every day these awesome ducks make the trek from their roof top home to the main lobby fountain. They ride the elevator! No stairs for these ducks of luxury...


Most everyone who travels to Memphis, Tennessee hope to stay at The Peabody Hotel. The Peabody is one of the most famous hotels in the world..It is deep south luxury at it's best..Gorgeous rooms, the best southern cuisine, and of course tons of great whisky...The southerners take their liquor quite seriously...



The hotel has had countless numbers of famous folks stay there...Johnny Cash had just left when I arrived back then. They wouldn't tell me which room had been using!


Memphis is very proud of their rock n roll legend Elvis Presley for certain but they are just as proud of these DUCKS! Stop and ask a local about the marching ducks and you'll see what I mean..Everyone has a duck story to share...
