“Duck the Halls” Holiday Events

  November 20th kicked off the holiday season when The Tustin Marketplace hosted the Anaheim Ducks’ Official Watch Party. Thursday was one of 5 events being held at the Marketplace that help make up what the hockey franchise is calling “Duck the Halls”. The night began with a tree lighting ceremony to light the three Ducks-themed trees located at the Marketplace. Special guest, Teemu Selanne, had the honor of lighting the trees. Selanne retired last year after 21 seasons in the NHL, 13+ of which were with the Ducks.

The smaller playground has sand on one side, so make sure to bring those sand toys. The smaller playground has a small open slide, small ride on pony and some...

We attended as a guest of the Aquarium Wylands’ Art Challenge which starts today Sept 25-Nov 25, encourages millions of students to use Art to address ocean conservation. Whether students live on the coast or thousands of miles upstream, millions of elementary and secondary students across the United States are invited to explore the future of the ocean as art of the Wyland “Water Is Life” National Art Challenge, an annual individual art and mural contest. We attended the kick off event for the Art Challenge as a guest of the Aquarium of the Pacific. It was amazing to see Robert Wyland bring his love for the arts and the ocean to life before our eyes, as he painted a mural of a whale. We watched in awe as how quickly and effortlessly the whale came to life against...
