Battle of the Badges
A Test of Strength and Agility
To honor the brave and selfless actions displayed by our local public safety officers on December 2, 2015, SBD Fest is proud to continue the tradition of SB Strong: Battle of the Badges.
SB Strong event will be held on SUNDAY with a Tug – o – War between the San Bernardino County Fire Department / San Manuel Band of Mission Indians Fire Departmenet & San Bernardino Police Department occurring in the early afternoon and the CHAMPIONSHIP Tug-O-War with the victor of the first challenge and the SB County Sheriff’s Department to follow.
The SB Strong Battle of the Badges is made possible, in part, through the generous support of the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians. As an indigenous community the origins and history of the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians stem from its relationship with the land and to all who share it. Since ancient times the Tribe has expressed itself through a culture of giving.
Today, San Manuel is able to answer the call of Yawa' (Serrano language word meaning “to act on one's beliefs”) through partnerships with charitable organizations. The Tribe draws upon its history, knowledge, expertise and cultural values to direct philanthropic giving regionally and to Native American causes and disaster relief on a national level.
