17th Annual Duck-a-Thon in Huntington Beach

duckathon

Yes, friends, it’s that time again. Time to watch hundreds, if not thousands of yellow rubber duckies in the waters of the Pacific off the Huntington Beach pier. If yours is one of the first 50 that make it back to shore, you get a very special prize!

This fundraiser benefits the AltaMed Huntington Beach Community Clinic, which serves thousands of un- and underinsured patients every year.

According to the official website:

The Duck-A-Thon™ begins Friday evening with a Sunset Wine Tasting at the Pier. This beautiful setting provides as a wonderful kick-off for the weekend. Local restaurants supply an array of tantalizing hors d’oeuvres while wineries from across California donate boutique wines that are poured all evening.

The actual Duck-A-Thon™ takes place all day Saturday & Sunday. Vendors line Huntington Beach Pier Plaza to sell arts & crafts, yummy treats, home décor, jewelry and much more.

A larger – than – life Children’s Area includes bounce houses, retired rubber duck decorating, games, a toddler’s zone and prizes!

Sounds like a worthy and worthwhile event! You can even buy your duckies online at the official site! Race time starts at 3pm Saturday, but this is a three-day event.
