(Victor Valley)– The City of Victorville hosted the final Neighborhood PopUp in its brand-new Summer PopUp Series, Aug. 10. The City’s Rock the End of Summer PopUp at Eagle Ranch Park featured a Touch-A-Truck, Doggie Fashion Show and Concert in the Park with local band, Impakt. More than 800 Eagle Ranch neighbors attended the event where they were treated to free refreshments, yard games, a water slide, prizes, fire truck hosedown from the Victorville Fire Department, and much more. Residents were also invited to view vehicles used by the City’s public safety and public works crews.
The City of Victorville organized this fun, family event as part of its renewed goal to get out in the community and better connect with residents. City staff manned the yard games and shared information about City services with those in attendance.
“The goal of our PopUps is to bring our City staff and services to our residents right in their neighborhoods and get neighbors visiting with one another in a fun atmosphere,” said Victorville Mayor, Gloria Garcia. “We want to hear from our residents so that we can improve service, strengthen our neighborhoods and build a stronger Victorville together.”
The event was sponsored by Kona Ice, Graves & King LLP, Desert Valley Hospital and Medical Group, Mercy Air, AMR, Sully Miller, Food 4 Less Store #397, and Wallin & Klarich.
An estimated 700 neighbors attended the City’s first-ever Neighborhood PopUp at Brentwood Park on June 8 that featured a Bark in the Park and Movie in the Park. The City plans to hold additional PopUps, most likely as a series next Spring/Summer. Who knows, the City of Victorville may just PopUp in your neighborhood next!
