Dunking of the Mayor
The dunking of the mayor is an annual tradition that encourages the city's leader to take a dive into the Bay. Buc Days King and Queen contestants cheer them on along the Corpus Christi Marina. The event ceremonially signals the pirate take over of the city, kicking off the Buc Days celebration in Corpus Christi.
This event is free and open to the public. It can be viewed from the Corpus Christi Seawall, across the street from the Omni Corpus Christi Hotel. Join the fun Thursday, April 29 at 5pm.
