A Whale of a Festival
Whale of a Day Festival
Point Vicente Interpretive Center, Palos Verdes
31501 Palos Verdes Drive West
Free Event and Parking (park and shuttle from Ranchos Palos Verdes City Hall at 30940 Hawthorne Blvd.)
Whale-watching volunteers sit in a row on the cliffs of Point Vicente because it is the perfect vantage point for seeing whatever is happening offshore – including whales swimming nearby. Volunteers count migrating grey whales for the American Cetacean Society’s annual census. A bell is rung every time a whale is spotted, so if you attend the “Whale of a Day Festival” and are distracted with an exhibit, raffle, food vendor, or craft don’t worry about missing a passing whale ~ you will be alerted with the ring of a bell.
The Point Vicente Lighthouse is normally open to the public but is undergoing some renovations, so it may or may not be open by March 10.
If you have any questions or need additional information, please call (310) 544-5260.
