Whale what do you know?  This is the closing weekend of the Festival of Whales.

The Festival of Whales celebrates migrating whales who use Dana Point's headland as a landmark on their journey southward. Festivities over two weekends include whale watching, a street fair, a parade, and an art show.

The festival will also include a Mobile Marine Mammal Museum, a cardboard Dingy Dash, the Ocean Institute-Ocean Education Center, and a rubber ducky race. Kids can take boat rides and SUP lessons, participate in sand sculpting, and watch movies under the stars.  Bands perform on the water on a specially designed stage for the Concert on the Water.

Visit the festival website for daily schedules and locations. Free shuttles are available to travel between events every day of the festival, from 10am to 4:30pm.
