First Annual Labor Day Picnic at Alameda, Airline Shopping Center

The first annual Labor Day Picnic was held from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday at a shopping center at the intersection of Alameda and Airline.

The free event was open to police officers, their families and the public as well. It featured free food, drinks, music, children's games, pony rides, a petting zoo and even a chance to dunk Corpus Christi Police Chief Floyd Simpson and Corpus Christi Fire Chief Robert Rocha.

Organizers wanted to honor those who have made a difference in the community, so they chose a teacher, a firefighters, a police officer and a City employee.

"It's just so we can thank the community and the working people of the community," organizer Susie Saldana said.

"Not only my guys, and first responders and the rest of the community," Chief Simpson said. "Particularly our military works so hard to keep us safe. Every member of the community that does a service for everyone."

"Any opportunity we get a chance to say thank you, I support that completely," Chief Rocha said.

Kiii News Reporter Anayeli Ruiz participated to dunk Chief Simpson at the event. 3News would like to thank him for being a good sport.
