Fireman’s Landing has been open to guests since the beginning of the season, but on Saturday the park was host to hundreds of firefighters from around the country to present an official grand opening ceremony and dedication. Uniformed firefighters led a parade through the streets of the city to Fireman’s Landing, where the grand opening activities included a call to volunteerism with firefighters leading kids in the “Firefighter’s Pledge” to serve.
One of our own SDCFans members, who goes by the username of “Swoosh”, led the California High School Pinto Pride Band in the procession and performance at the Landing.
A feature of the new area is a sign constructed out of materials from the former Geyser Gulch, on which is a “Firefighter’s Pledge”. After stating the pledge, patrons are encouraged to ring a bell affixed to the sign. The pledge monument within Fireman’s Landing is preceded by Outlaw Run’s monument to law enforcement personnel.
