“Cruisin’ the USA in your Chevrolet” will be the name of the game during Chevrolet’s virtual fan festival held the week of August 10-16, 2020. The week-long fan fest will celebrate more than a century of the company’s history. It will be hosted on the Chevrolet social media channels, including @twitter, @instagram, Pinterest and @TeamChevy. It will be the perfect way for viewers, Chevy Fans or both to take a look back in time at the brand’s rich history that is filled with so much innovation, design and passion. Napleton.news would normally be there in person except for this pandemic thing.
A PLACE TO HONOR CHEVROLET’S HISTORY
“Classic car events have served as a place for us to honor Chevrolet’s deep automotive history and its influence on our present and future with car enthusiasts from around the world,” said Steve Majoros, vice president of marketing for Chevrolet. “Cruisin’ the USA in your Chevrolet is a way for us to keep that spirit alive.”
The plans for the festival include a different theme each day, which will immerse the fans tuning in to virtual events that will include historic footage, trivia, guest appearances and more. Chevrolet experts will also be on hand to provide some in-depth looks and commentary on some of the brand’s most iconic vehicles.
