The San Diego kiss-off

SAN DIEGO, CA (CNN) - Dozens of couples puckered up for a big kiss-off in front of the iconic victory kiss statue in San Diego Saturday.

The "unconditional surrender" statue is modeled after the famous photo of a sailor and nurse kissing at the end of the second World War.

It's been on loan to the Port of San Diego since 2007,  but the agreement expires at the end of this month.

Couples taking part in the kiss-off were trying to raise money to make a permanent replica of the statue in bronze.
