The Duck Yuletide Celebration features holiday favorites by Just Playn’ Dixieland, Santa’s arrival on the Duck Fire truck, and the lighting of the Town Crab Pot Tree. The First Flight High School Chorus will rove around town carol singing, ending up at the Town Park for Santa’s arrival. Participants will enjoy coffee and light treats provided by Treehouse Coffee and a hot chocolate bar provided by Ships Watch. Food for Thought and the Outer Banks SPCA will be accepting donations. Food For Thought will also be selling raffle tickets at the event. In conjunction with the town’s event, the Duck Merchants Association will be on site to collect completed Great Yuletide Elf Hunt Passports.
Before the Yuletide Celebration, enjoy shopping, dining and strolling through Duck during The Great Yuletide Elf Hunt organized by Duck Merchants from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Pick up your “Yuletide Passport” at participating Duck Merchant locations to begin your elf hunt. Then, head to the Duck Town Green with your stamped Passport to receive a free gift for kids, be entered into a drawing for baskets full of Duck Merchant goodies, and to see Santa! Special sales and promotions will be available at each participating merchant. Learn more at www.doducknc.com.
