Big Duck_1

This week’s rainstorms have pushed back the annual “Deck the Duck” holiday lighting at the Big Duck in Flanders to Thursday night.

The 28th duck-decking event had been scheduled for tonight, Wednesday, but rain in the forecast forced a delay. The ceremony, which also features Christmas carols and the arrival of Santa by fire truck, will be held Thursday night at 7 p.m. instead

The Friends of the Big Duck will be serving some refreshments at the event, and both the Big Duck and the duck museum will be open to the public, organizers say. The Flanders Riverside and Northampton Community Association will also have a community tent with some tables promoting all of the upcoming holiday events going on in the area.

About 600 people showed up on Saturday to have their picture taken with the guy in the big, red suit – and get some free pancakes topped with gummy bears, M&Ms, whipped cream and more in the process.

North Shore Christian Church on Kroemer Avenue hosted its sixth annual Breakfast With Santa event, open to all families, from 9 a.m. to noon. In one room, rows of tables hosted eager children for the breakfast, while Santa and his elves waited in another room to sit for a picture with local kids.

Check out these photos from Saturday’s event.
