Each spring, thousands of gray whales and their calves begin the journey back north from the Baja, passing just off the SoCal coast in the process. To celebrate, Dana Point hosts two weekends of festivities dedicated to the marine migration. Opening day festivities include a parade and street fair and the fest closes out with a whale-themed concert, with crafts, art shows and whale watching excursions scattered in between. The festival takes place all over the Dana Point Harbor; you'll find free four-hour parking in the harbor lots, as well as all-day parking ($8) at Doheney State Beach, with a free shuttle servicing the festival area.
