Event Report

We opened the event with Satellite Beach Vice Mayor Steve Osmer reading the official city proclamation. The Kennedy Space Center dropped off their lunar rover to put on display - everyone forgets that it is an electric vehicle too! A DIY electrified Austin Healey was also on display. Even after Hurricane Irma made finding food supplies and generators hard to find we still had two food trucks, Coastal Kitchen and Good Moos with much needed ice cream and smoothies to cool down from the hot sun. All attendees loved the free raffle prizes like Hot Wheels Teslas, die cast BMW i3 and i8, and other Schneider Electric water bottles, lunch boxes and tumblers that were drawn every 15-20 minutes. Since we had 42 EVs (some showing up and leaving at different times to work on hurricane clean up) we had to use a drone to get a good picture of it all. All attendees agreed it was a lot of fun, educational, we should do this more often and probably not around hurricane season!

Event Description

 


This year we will have the brand new Electric Fun Rides store right next to us.  We will be able to show everyone not only all the different makes and models of electric cars but also electric bikes, scooters, and even skateboards and unicycles!
We had 42 electric cars last year, we are going to try to break more than 50 EVs this year.  So if you've ever wanted to see all the different makes and models of electric vehicle to choose from AND ask questions from the people that drive them every single day to work, school, and on road trips, come on out to this event.  We will have both static cars on display for you to look at and peek under the hood as well as a set of cars ready to take test ride and drives around the block!  

This will is the BIGGEST DAY for ELECTRIC VEHICLES for the year around the whole nation (and other countries are getting on board too!)  Bring the whole family and invite everyone you know to this free event and have all of your questions about driving on electricity answered by people who do it every day, love how their car drives, and save money on fuel and maintenance while they drive on locally created electrons.
