The public is invited to participate in a number of Yuletide events throughout the Town of Duck on December 7.

According to a press release from the town, festivities begin that morning with the Great Yuletide Elf Hunt organized by the Duck Merchants Association and will conclude with the 9th Annual Yuletide Celebration from 3-5 p.m. at the Duck Town Park.

A number of Duck businesses have something for everyone on any shopper’s list. Residents and visitors can pick up a “Great Yuletide Elf Hunt Passport” at select locations, then shop and stroll through Duck Village from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. while listening to strolling carolers from First Flight High School during the afternoon. Completed passports can be exchanged at  Duck Town Park for a children’s gift and be entered into a drawing for gift baskets full of Duck merchant goodies and gift cards.
