Campland kicked off their 50th Anniversary Celebration with music playing, families dancing and smiles all around. It was a day that had everyone feeling Ahh-OOOO!-standing. It was a site to be seen, something for everyone. With all the children running around (some adults too), the options were endless on things to do. There was Human Foosball, Dunk Tanks and Dodgeball. It was a day filled with fun for all! Some of San Diego’s best cover bands were there to play, Groove Kitty, Radio Thieves and Arena rocked the day away!
Saturday, October 6th, 2018 was the kickoff event for the yearlong celebration that Campland on the Bay held filled with raffles, family friendly activities for all ages, live music and a special visit from Councilmember Lorie Zapf and County Representative Sal Giametta. Lorie Zapf surprised Campland on the Bay with proclamations announcing October 6th as “Campland on the Bay Day” in both the city and county of San Diego!
Campland on the Bay officially opened in 1969, and though some things have changed in the past 50 years, one thing has remained the same, Campland on the Bay’s goal to offer everyone “Family – Friendly – Fun!” There was no better showing of that than at the 50th Anniversary Celebration. Campland on the Bay is San Diego’s premier campground and continues to be family owned and operated. As Campland on the Bay celebrates its first 50 years, it is also looking forward to the next 50 years here on Mission Bay.
We had tons of food as well with food trucks lining Central Park. The Campland Cantina served delicious meals and drinks all day long. Friendly the Wolf made appearances, surprising young children with a big yellow wolf pretending to drive an RV.
If you thought the first 50 years were amazing, just wait to see what the next 50 years looks like. Join Friends of Campland to help make sure Campland on the Bay doesn’t go anywhere.
