VICTORVILLE, Calif. (VVNG.com) — Valley Hi Toyota’s semi-annual Used Car Giveaway is in full swing and the dealership is offering local Veterans a chance to win.

Two weeks ago, the local Toyota dealership garnered over 25 thousand views when it unveiled the Toyota Matrix as the vehicle for Used Car Giveaway 17 and the easiest way to qualify to become a finalist by simply placing “IWANNAWIN” on the comments section.

Then last Thursday, they announced the finalists via randomly selecting comments from the contest for a total of seven.

“We know your time is precious and we know that we can spread the news faster by creating a fun way to participate in our contests,” said Brian Ortega, Creative Director at Valley Hi Toyota. Ortega went onto Facebook Live along with General Manager, Todd Stokes to randomly select those four finalists.

After the announcement, Valley Hi Toyota presented the opportunity to nominate Veterans or Active Duty military members to become finalists. “We created a simple form to fill out on our website (Android here) for you to honor a veteran by nominating them to become one of 4 to be selected as a finalist. It’s Veterans Day and we wanted to specifically focus this round on our Service Members.”

Town of Apple Valley to host fireworks, cancels Freedom Festival and Sunset Concerts

Town to host fireworks, cancels Freedom Festival and Sunset Concerts

APPLE VALLEY, Calif. — The Town of Apple Valley has canceled this year’s Sunset Concert Series and the Freedom Festival due to public health concerns amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Despite the cancelation of the well-attended events, a July 4th fireworks show will go on.

“We’ve gotten so many inquiries as to whether or not there would be fireworks that we just couldn’t imagine an Independence Day without them,” said Mayor Scott Nassif. “Of course, it will be different this year in order to maintain social distance measures, but we would rather celebrate our freedom without the festival than to not celebrate at all.”

Per state guidelines, large-crowd events such as festivals, concerts and live sporting events are still yet to reopen due to their higher-risk of potential COVID-19 spread. Those events will hopefully resume later this summer.

In order to balance the tradition of pyrotechnics with the safety protocols of the pandemic, the fireworks will be staged at Brewster Park, which will be gated and locked to prevent on-site viewing. Residents will be encouraged to view the show from their homes. 

Should spectators choose to see the show closer, they will be encouraged to view from the safety of their vehicle in an open space area. Spectators are urged to obey all traffic laws and to refrain from parking on private property.

The 18-minute firework spectacular is scheduled to begin at 9 p.m. with patriotic music simulcast on 106.5 The Fox radio station.

As a reminder, fireworks are prohibited in Apple Valley and subject to a $1,000 fine.
