2011 LBFD Kids Beach Fest

By Steve Yamamoto | August 24, 2011

  On August the 17th, 2011 the Long Beach Fire Department (LBFD) once again teamed up with Millers Children’s Hospital to participate in the annual “Beach Fest Day”, as a part of the LBFD Kids Program.  The mission of the program has always been to enhance the lives and well being of the chronically ill children at Millers Hospital through smiles and laughter.  This has been a longstanding tradition that was started back in the 90’s. This year’s event had about 23 on and off-duty firefighters in attendance that spent time with the young hospital patients, escorting them around to various activities that were set up in the large tropically themed room.  Activities ranged from live music and dancing, to face painting, tic tac toe, a DJ for music, and the always popular bubble show. For those that built up an appetite from all of the activities, food and beverages were also provided for everyone as well as some very fun and decorative fruit displays. Once again this marked another successful year at “Beach Fest.”  We want to thank everyone that made this day a success. For more information on this event or future programs through the LBFD Kids Organization, please contact Captain Greg Curiel.
