The three-day event raises much needed funds for AltaMed's Huntington Beach Community Clinic, where thousands of uninsured and medically underserved patients are treated every year!
Each year the Duck-A-Thon™ has a new theme. This year – our 21st Anniversary – the theme is "Surfin' Safari".
The Duck-A-Thon™ begins Friday evening with a Sunset Wine Tasting at the Pier. This beautiful setting enhances 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 duck drop starts at 6:45 in the above video.|
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 Kid Zone includes bounce houses, retired rubber duck decorating, games, a toddler’s zone and prizes!
You can help support the health of your community! Buy a Duck! You get to name your duck and wish it well, before it is tossed off the Huntington Beach Pier with 4,000 friends, into the waves to race to the shore in the surf.
On Saturday, over 4,000 baby duckies (the traditional size rubber duck) turn the tides yellow as they race to dry land! The first 60 baby ducks to shore win their owners a prize. “Heart to Heart” ducks win their owners two prizes!
On Sunday, Corporate ducks compete for the coveted Golden Duck Traveling Trophy. Corporate ducks are larger rubber ducks and there is only one winner in this race.
