Editor’s Note: 2018 Whale of a Day Festivities will be held on March 10, 2018 from 10am to 4pm.
March is often the peak of the Gray Whale migration, with large numbers of whales including mother and calves passing the Palos Verdes coastline. Come out and celebrate with a free family friendly festival on the ground of the Point Vicente Interpretive Center! Although the event and parking is free and most activities are free, it is always a good idea to bring a little cash as there is a charge for the bounce house, food and snacks.
“Whale of a Day” is a festival celebrating the migration of the Pacific Gray Whale from its summer feeding grounds in the Bering and Chuchki Seas in Alaska to the winter breeding and calving grounds in Baja California. Migration viewing takes place December through April along the California South Bay coastline.
