The City of Turlock has confirmed that Feb. 3 – Super Bowl Sunday – will officially become known as “Colin Kaepernick Day,” following a City proclamation to be issued on Feb. 2.
The proclamation will be presented at the “Turlock Believes” tailgate party which is being held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Feb. 2 in the Pitman High School parking lot in honor of the Turlock-bred 49ers quarterback. The tailgate looks to give Turlockers a chance to join together in honor of Kaepernick’s prior success and to root for a hopeful victory in the XLVII Super Bowl on Feb 3.
Deputy City Clerk Stacey Tonarelli said that although it has been confirmed that the proclamation will be presented at the event, the City is still determining who will present the proclamation. It is expected, however, that Mayor John Lazar or a Turlock City Councilmember will perform the duty.
The “Turlock Believes” event is free and open to the public. For more information regarding the event, please visit www.turlockedfoundation.org/turlockbelieves.
