Tomorrow, January 26, 2013 from 11:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. will be the 5th annual Big Bay Whale Festival in San Diego. This will be held at the Port Pavilion on the Broadway Pier in Downtown San Diego. The festival will celebrate the incredible phenomenon of the annual California Gray Whale migration. This free community event for all ages will feature over 50 vendors providing giveaways, food, and entertainment. There will be plenty of family friendly activities such as a walk through whale, a bounce house obstacle course, a mini-train, free face painting, a sea life coloring mural and a main stage with entertainment throughout the day.
Our own Rebecca Milkey the Director of Marketing at Hornblower San Diego is the chair of the event and created the idea. When the festival first began five years ago it had an attendance of 500 and has grown since to 5,000, and this year Milkey is hoping to draw in a whopping 8,000 visitors! Each year the San Diego Hornblower Cruises & Events port takes 35,000 whale watchers out on cruises to watch grey whales as they migrate down the coast. So come down and join the fun for Big Bay Whale Festival or come and experience another year of amazing whale watching from a Hornblower Cruises & Events yacht!
