~ SAVE THE DATE ~
We will celebrate the anniversary with a picnic on September 22nd in Kimball Park from 11am-3pm
This event is made possible by our generous sponsors; the Port of San Diego, City of National City and the National City Chamber of Commerce. The event will include food & concession sales by the National School District and Sweetwater High as a fundraising opportunity. Some of the food one can expect at the event will be Mexican and America favorites including pizza, hamburgers, hotdogs, carne asada and quesadillas in addition to an old fashioned root beer float garden.
The City stage will be full of entertainment throughout the entire day with musical performances by the National City Community Concert Band, Sweetwater Mariachi, and Barbershop Quartet. Karate and Ballet Folklorica demonstrations will round out the entertainment for all ages. You won’t want to miss out on the old fashion Spelling Bee competition that will kick off the entertainment for the day!
The YMCA is coordinating all the Field Day activities and all ages are encouraged to participate from toddlers to seniors. There will be plenty of activities for all ages including a family tug of war competition, 3 legged races, egg races, and a watermelon eating contest. Residents will also have the opportunity to enjoy for FREE some old time favorites including a dunk tank, can toss, photo booth, and creating a period themed hat from the era!
The picnic will also feature a large tent that will house all the historical items throughout the years including photos, books, and household items from the late 1800 & early 1900’s. The National City Historical Society will be in attendance wearing turn of the century themed attire. The National City Public Art Committee has partnered with the National School District to hold an art contest in the tent. Winners will be announced during the closing ceremonies. A local non-profit; A Reason to Survive will open their doors to the community for tours and registration in the National City Arts Center.
