25th Anniversary Duck-A-Thon-Huntington Beach Pier, May 19-21, 2017

The Annual Duck-A-Thon™ is an exciting Huntington Beach tradition at the Huntington Beach Pier. This off-the-pier fundraiser incorporates all the best qualities: sand, sun, surf, food and rubber ducks!  The three-day event raises much needed funds for AltaMed’s Huntington Beach clinic, where thousands of medically underserved patients are treated every year.The Duck-A-Thon™ fundraiser began in 1992 as a rubber duck race from the Huntington Beach Pier back to shore with ducks racing to win prizes for their owners. Thanks to a creative and dedicated group of volunteers, it has evolved into a weekend long festival which (literally) turns the surf yellow every May. The event draws thousands of locals and visitors, and has raised more than $3 million to care for families in need. Duck-A-Thon 2017, to be held May 19-21.
