(Flanders, N.Y., Dec. 4, 2019) – Long Island Ducks mascot, QuackerJack, took a journey out east on Wednesday night to take part in the annual lighting of the famous Big Duck in Flanders.

QJ was greeted warmly by families from all across Long Island for the holiday celebration. While at the free event, QuackerJack helped spread holiday cheer by joining the Riverhead Middle School Show Choir in singing duck carols. He also posed for photographs with fans of all ages and Santa Claus, who arrived courtesy of the Flanders Fire Department.

QuackerJack and Santa Claus will both be in attendance at Bethpage Ballpark on Saturday, December 7, when the Ducks celebrate the holiday season by re-opening the Waddle In Shop and kicking off their annual toy drive at 10:00 a.m. For more information, please CLICK HERE.
