"Whale of a Day" is a festival celebrating the migration of the Pacific Gray Whale from its summer feeding grounds in the Bering and Chuchki Seas in Alaska to the winter breeding and calving grounds in Baja California. Migration viewing takes place December through April along the California South Bay coastline.

As stated above, the 2016 Whale of a Day Celebration will be held on Saturday, March 12, from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM. The event is free to the public. The celebration is sponsored jointly by members of Los Serenos de Point Vicente and the City of Rancho Palos Verdes. The event will be held on the main grounds of the Point Vicente Interpretive Center at 31501 Palos Verdes Drive West. Free parking is available at the Rancho Palos Verdes City Hall located at 30940 Hawthorne Blvd. with a free shuttle bus service to PVIC.

There are activities for children ~ face painting, children's crafts, small children's games ~ all at no charge. There are also exhibits, craft and food vendors and a raffle drawing.

Some of the past participants have included The Aquarium of the Pacific with its Aquarium on Wheels, Cabrillo Marine Aquarium, George F Canyon Nature Center, Save the Manatee, National Marine Fisheries, Heal the Bay, American Cetacean Society, Whale Watch, Marine Mammal Care Center, South Bay Wildlife Rehab with their rescued hawks and other raptors, PVP Land Conservancy, California Native Plant Society, and Las Candalistas.

Normally, the Point Vicente Lighthouse is open to the public for tours which are given on a first come, first served basis for ages 7 and older [MAP]. However, the Lighthouse is currently undergoing renovation/repairs and may or may not be open on Whale of a Day.
