San Diego’s Little Italy Hosts First Responder’s Celebration

For the first time ever, San Diego’s Little Italy will be hosting a First Responder’s Celebration to honor San Diego’s first responders, Saturday at 5pm.

The Little Italy Association invites the community to join them to pay tribute to these organizations for their service and contribution to our City. In their honor, the Little Italy Association will light up the entire Piazza della Famiglia and all of India Street in blue lights. After the celebration, the Little Italy Association will host the Marine Band San Diego Summer Concert.

Honored guests include:

  • Assembly Member Todd Gloria
  • Asst. Sheriff Kelly Martinez of the San Diego Sheriff Department
  • Chief David Nisleit of the San Diego Police Department
  • Interim Chief Kevin Ester of the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department

But, of course, the real stars of the day are the hard working first responders who put it all on the line for us each and every day!
