Dozens of people in Kern County can officially call themselves U.S. citizens after they were sworn in at Colonel Allensworth State Historic Park in the Central Valley Friday.

People across the valley gathered at the park just northwest of Delano for the naturalization ceremony.

About 100 people earned their citizenship, about half of which were from Kern County.
