We started off with a parade into the event, led by a 1917 Detroit Electric. BMW sponsored the event, and had 4 e-cars for ride-and-drives, and one for static display. There was a Chevy Bolt on display from the dealer. The other cars (2 Leafs, 3 Teslas, a Ford Focus Electric, Chevy Spark, Zero motorcycle, a Karman Ghia conversion...) were privately owned. There were display tables staffed by people from the Metropolitan Energy Center, the regional electricity provider (KCPL), and a local nonprofit (MindDrive) that teaches high school students how to convert ICE cars to electric. We also had a terrific ride-and-drive display of e-bicycles from ERIKS'S Bicycles (these numbers are not included in the "Number of test rides/drives given" tally). We had great weather, and feel the event was very successful.
