The John Deere Pavilion is "Hatching" a Good Time March 24-26

Annual duck hatching event includes spring photo opportunities for families

MOLINE, Illinois (March 14, 2016) – Officials at the John Deere Pavilion, Deere & Company's visitor center in downtown Moline, Ill., are taking the term "nesting" to a whole new level as they prepare to hatch dozens of ducklings as part of the annual duck hatching event. March 24-26, visitors to the Pavilion can see ducks hatching, sprouting their feathers and having fun in their pond and playground. Guests will also have an opportunity to take spring photos with the ducklings on March 25 and 26.

"This is an incredibly fun event for us and for our guests," said Brigitte Tapscott, manager of the John Deere Pavilion. "Not only are the ducklings incredibly cute to see, but it is a fantastic educational opportunity for children to watch the process as it happens. It's not something you get to see every day!"

The John Deere Pavilion offers free admission, is open to the public year-round, and welcomes group tours. The John Deere Store, located adjacent to the Pavilion, stocks a large and unique selection of the latest officially-licensed John Deere products including clothing, toys, books, and collectibles. The Pavilion will be closed for Easter on Sunday, March 27.
