Because of the partial government shutdown, the park’s originally scheduled three-day Centennial Celebration from Oct. 12-14 was cancelled. The rescheduled centennial activities will coincide with the park’s third annual “World War II — Fort Rosecrans Goes to War” event, which highlights the park’s military history.
“I’m very pleased to announce the rescheduling of this special historic community event,” said park superintendent Tom Workman. “Combining the centennial events with our annual military history tribute will make this a very special and memorable weekend for staff, volunteers and visitors. We invite the public to come and celebrate San Diego’s only National Park.”
All facilities and grounds at Cabrillo National Monument are now back open with the normally scheduled hours of 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The tidepool area closes at 4:30 p.m. and the Bayside Trail closes at 4 p.m. The Cabrillo National Monument Foundation Bookstore is also open for business. The “Cabrillo Lights Up the Night” event has been rescheduled for March 15. For more information, visit www.cnmf.org or www.nps.gov/cabr.
