Wildquack Duck Race & Music Festival

JACKSON NH – Due to the Covid-19 virus we have had to reschedule our Duck Race & Music Festival.  This year we plan on giving our locals, visitors, friends and family a fun filled weekend celebrating our move toward re-opening with a weekend long Grand “Welcome Back” celebration.

The celebration starts on Friday night July 31st with Fireworks, then on Saturday, August 1st from 10 AM until 3 PM we will be hosting the annual Wildquack Duck Race & Music Festival.  Things maybe a little different as the Wildcat River maybe too low for the ducks to swim but we will figure out how it will all go as we get closer to the event.

You can expect food vendors, kids games, fun for the entire family… lots of prizes and just celebrating being together.  For more information please visit our website.

Jackson Village Park located on Route 16 A in Jackson Village, Jackson, New Hampshire.

seek the peak

Seek the Peak 2020 Has Gone VIRTUAL – Hike-On & Seek YOUR Peak!

The COVID 19 pandemic has hit the Mount Washington Observatory financially. Many nonprofits are in similar situations, but the timing is especially critical for the Observatory.

This summer we celebrate the 20th anniversary of our Seek the Peak fundraiser. What is ordinarily a hiking extravaganza will be a virtual experience this year. Our celebration will be a collective of shared hikes online from across the nation. We rely on this event for a good part of our annual budget. The Observatory has weathered many storms in our 87 year history but this change means we need your support more than ever.

We already have participants committed to raising funds and seeking their own peak.
We are grateful for these dedicated folks.

Here’s where you come in. Contribute to a participant. Or set up a team of your own, even without hiking, and raise funds for the Observatory. Help make this the most successful year ever for Seek the Peak.
