On Saturday, December 7, 2013, at 3:00 p.m., join us on the Town Green at 1200 Duck Road for the Third Annual Duck Yuletide Celebration. Enjoy an afternoon filled with holiday cheer and an opportunity to provide donations to local non-profit organizations. Sing along to some classic holiday tunes with Emme St. James & Her Jazz Gentlemen, witness an unforgettable special appearance by Santa Claus as he trades in his sleigh for an arrival on the Duck Fire Truck, and watch the lighting of the Crab Pot Tree. We invite the public to bring donations for Children & Youth Partnership, Food for Thought, and Outer Banks SPCA.
