‘Tis the Season for Holiday Fun
Holiday season has arrived Ducks fans! The weather is starting to feel more and more like winter, and Thanksgiving will kick off the holidays in just a couple of days. With that in mind, the Ducks are gearing up for the festivities as well, and there are plenty of events to mark on your calendars in the upcoming weeks.
As has been the case every year, the Waddle In Shop, the official merchandise store of the Ducks, will be re-opening for the holiday season so fans can get the baseball fan in their life the perfect gift. This year, the store will be opening back up on Saturday, December 7 at 10:00 a.m. The day will feature visits from Long Island’s favorite mascot, QuackerJack, and Santa Claus, so be sure to come out and visit with the entire family.
In addition, the Ducks will be kicking off their annual toy drive on December 7 for those spending the holidays in the hospital. Fans can donate new, unwrapped toys by placing them beneath the Christmas tree in the store that day as well as during normal business hours at Bethpage Ballpark from December 7 through 16. The toys will then be delivered by members of the Ducks Street Team to the pediatric units at Stony Brook University Medical Center, Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center and North Shore LIJ/Southside Hospital.

The Ducks will also be marching in three different holiday parades over the next two weeks on Long Island. To help kick off the holiday season, the Ducks float will be making its way to celebrations around the community. The Atlantic League championship trophy will be on display atop the float, members of the Ducks organization will be riding along the parade route, Ducks Street Team members will be saying hello to the crowd and maybe even a few will be tossing a few t-shirts to some lucky spectators. The following is a list of the parades in which the Ducks will be attending:
Patchogue Holiday Parade – Saturday, November 30 at 6:00 p.m.
Islip Holiday Parade – Saturday, December 7 at 2:00 p.m.
Be sure to come on out, congratulate the team on winning back-to-back Atlantic League championships, say hello to your favorite members of the Ducks and celebrate the holidays!
