Win an Exclusive “Summer of Love” Prize Pack; Catch a FREE Ride to Jerry Day on August 2

Take a trip back in time with Ride The Ducks’ new “quackadelic” ride, Jerry. Complete with a multi-colored tie-dye exterior, Jerry pays homage to San Francisco’s historic psychedelic past, named after the late Jerry Garcia of The Grateful Dead.

On Sunday, August 2, an official Jerry Day celebration held at Jerry Garcia Amphitheater in the Excelsior District’s McLaren Park will include live music by local bands, including Stu Allen & Mars Hotel, Melvin Seals & JGB, and Terrapin Family Band. Catch a FREE ride on the psychedelic duck, serving as the Jerry Day shuttle between Glen Park BART Station and the Jerry Garcia Amphitheater. The shuttle will be available all day, running every 30 minutes between 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. There’s no better way to travel to Jerry Day! For more information on Jerry Day, visit jerryday.org.    

In addition to Jerry Day, guests of Ride The Ducks who board Jerry for a ride throughout San Francisco can win an exclusive “Summer of Love” prize pack, including a psychedelic “hippie duck” temporary tattoo, a peace sign necklace, and a coupon to Ben & Jerry’s. Snap your best hippie selfie with the hashtag #DucksSummerOfLoveSF and pick up your prize at the end of your Ride The Ducks excursion.

“When visitors come to San Francisco, the Summer of Love in the Haight-Ashbury district is one of the most recognized aspects of the city,” said Brett Stiff, Interim General Manager for Ride The Ducks of San Francisco. “There’s no better way to celebrate San Francisco’s famous past than with our own custom-made psychedelic duck. And with this year being the 50th anniversary of The Grateful Dead, it seemed like the perfect time to welcome our “Jerry” to the world.”

Ride The Ducks offers 90-minute tours of the city, beginning at Fisherman’s Wharf and ending with a splash into the San Francisco Bay. The ducks visit many of San Francisco’s most sought after neighborhoods and attractions, including Union Square, North Beach, Ghirardelli Square, and AT&T Park. Jerry will be available upon request for private charters and will be included in the rotation of Ride The Ducks tours.
