“CHULA VISTA 4TH FEST” BRINGS JULY 4TH FIREWORKS BACK TO CHULA VISTA


(June 6, 2016) San Diego, CA – Today, media group SDLocal and the City of Chula Vista announced “Chula Vista 4th Fest,” a free Fourth of July fireworks show at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista.

A custom music soundtrack synchronized to the fireworks will air on the five SDLocal radio stations; Magic 92.5 (XHRM-FM, 92.5), Z90 (XHTZ-FM, 90.3), 91X (XTRA-FM, 91.1), AM 760 (KFMB-AM), and KFM-BFM (KFMB-FM, 100.7).

This will be the first public fireworks show in the City of Chula Vista since 2008. SDLocal is working with the City of Chula Vista to pool resources to bring back the holiday celebration.

Chula Vista Mayor Mary Casillas Salas presented the idea to the Chula Vista City Council which unanimously voted to support the fireworks show. The Mayor, along with Deputy Mayor Steve Miesen, are working jointly to fundraise for the project.

“The City of Chula Vista is thrilled to bring back the 4th of July fireworks,” said Mayor Mary Casillas Salas. “Thank you to the U.S. Olympic Training Center and our sponsors who are helping to make this event possible.”

“We are proud to partner with the City of Chula Vista to bring back the fireworks,” said Gregg Wolfson, SDLocal Vice President and General Manager.  “This will be a great event on a special day to unite the local community and provide a one-of-a-kind fireworks show, with a soundtrack you can only hear on our five stations.”

The fireworks show will begin at 9 p.m., gates to the U.S. Olympic Training Center (OTC) will open at 6 p.m. for cars and pedestrians.  Parking at the OTC will cost $10 per vehicle. Street parking (including along Olympic Parkway) and at New Hope Community Church is free. Other locations in the area with a view of the show include Mountain Hawk Park and along Hunte Parkway.

SDLocal is a joint operating arrangement between Midwest Television, Inc., operators of KFM-BFM 100.7 and AM 760, and Local Media San Diego, LLC, operator of 91X, Magic 92.5 and Z90.
