That's right West Coasters (and whoever else may be reading) it's the 24th annual Pacific Rim Whale Fest!!! I'm not going to do the event justice here but there is a lot of good info on their official site.
There are a few of the event I'm going to highlight though.
Martini Migration is on Wednesday the 10th. A celebration of migrating gray whales, the return of the sun, and a bottle or two of gin (or vodka). This year the entertainment is the Island's own Current Swell and the event will be hosted by myself and Cam Dennison. It WILL sell out so get yerself a ticket.
Barnacle Blues is a party not to be missed at the Blackrock Resort on March 11th. This year is Blues Veteran David Gogo taking the stage. A guitarist so talented it's frustrating.... there will also be barnacles to eat but that sounds like some sort of thing zombie pirates would do, I'll stick to the tunes. Again get your ticket soon cuz this WILL sell out.
Another great event during the Whale Fest is the WHALES. This year it looks like the bulk of the gray whales' northerly migration will coenside perfectly with the festival, so be sure to get out on a boat and see the spectacle for yourself, the longest mammal migration on the planet.
Please don't go thinking this is all that happens at Whalefest. There are literally hundreds of things to see and do. Go to their website.
I'll have pic and vids from Whalefest soon. Thanks for listening to Long Beach Radio.
