On Saturday everybody showed up at Kid’s Kingdom Park where niner fans flooded the park with canopies and flags representing their chapters and San Francisco 49ers. The faithful continued to fight off the sun with games, music, the empire shotstick, and raffles donated from the San Francisco 49ers, Niner Empire store, Chapters, Magic Touch 1111( Grand prize trip to Las Vegas), After the BBQ some folks hit the lake and set up canopies, and jumped into Shasta Lake.
