Yuletide cheer is coming to the Town of Duck this holiday season with the 4th Annual Duck Yuletide Celebration on Saturday, December 6, 2014, and two, month-long contests with support of the local business community: a Holiday Window Decoration Contest and #DucktheHalls Instagram Scavenger Hunt, both from November 28 through December 19, 2014.
The Duck Yuletide Celebration takes place on Saturday, December 6 on the Duck Town Green (1200 Duck Road) from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. and will feature live holiday tunes by Emme St. James & Her Jazz Gentlemen and the First Flight High School Chorus. The event will culminate in the lighting of the Town Crab Pot Tree and an unforgettable appearance by Santa Claus as he trades in his sleigh for an arrival on a Duck Fire Truck. Attendees are asked to bring donations for the Outer Banks SPCA and Food for Thought who will be on site to collect items during the event. A list of items is available on our website. In the event of adverse weather, the celebration will be held inside the Town Meeting Hall. Duck Merchants will also be joining in the Yuletide cheer with many businesses offering special discounts on Saturday, December 6 and extending hours until 7:00 p.m.
In addition to the Yuletide Celebration, enjoy the chance to win gift cards to multiple Duck businesses to help you complete your holiday shopping.
