Ducks mascot celebrates fun day with children on Long Island
(Mineola, N.Y., Feb. 21, 2018) – On Wednesday, Long Island Ducks mascot QuackerJack stopped by the Nassau County Bar Association to for the organization's 30th Annual WE CARE Fund Children’s Festival.
The eight-time Best Long Island Mascot greeted all of the children in attendance as they enjoyed some delicious treats. He then joined New York Mets mascot Mr. Met and New York Islanders mascot Sparky on the dance floor with dozens of kids to show off his moves.
QuackerJack also played many games with the children, including basketball shooting and air hockey challenges. Finally, QJ checked out the fire department truck and police cars that were on-site for the children to see and learn about.
