One thing to do when visiting San Diego should surely be to visit this “Kiss” statue. It is such a beautiful sight to see being that its is placed in San Diego’s waterfront but most importantly what it stands for. The “Kiss” statue represents victory and heroism from all the soldiers during World War II.
SAN DIEGO (CNS) - The replacement "Kiss" statue on the downtown San Diego waterfront was dedicated during a special ceremony Saturday.
The 25-foot-tall bronze sculpture arrived from New Jersey on Monday and was permanently installed Wednesday.
The dedication ceremony at the G Street Mole across from the USS Midway Aircraft Carrier Museum is scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. and include unveiling the statue, a presentation of new cherry trees donated by the Japanese Friendship Garden Society of San Diego, and a renewal of vows by several couples married during World War II.
A "Salute to Heroes" festival is scheduled at the adjacent Navy Pier beginning at 11 a.m. Among other things, the festival will include stations where donations can be made to the San Diego Food Bank and San Diego Humane Society.
