March 5th – March 6th
March 12th – March 13th
This Orange County institution, now in its 45th year, offers a massive salute to that massive mammal, the California Gray Whale. Over the course of two weekends, there will be a parade, a street fair, sand sculpting, concerts, kids activities, car shows, art projects, boat competitions, a clam chowder cook-off and, naturally, whale watching excursions. And this just touches the surface of this festival’s fabulous attractions.
