National Drive Electric Week
Satellite Beach, FL

|Day:||Saturday, September 15, 2018 NOTE: this event has already happened, find current-year events on the Attend page.|
|Location:||Satellite Beach, FL
We kicked off the event at 10 am with Satellite Beach FL City Councilwoman Mindy Gibson reading the proclamation signed by the Mayor Frank Cantino. A local Boy Scouts troop helped with the set-up and held a cobbler and popcorn fundraiser. We had the NASA Lunar Rover test vehicle on display to remind everyone that it was also electric powered. Attendees appreciated the food trucks and especially the one with ice cream. The weather was perfect if not a tad hot. We had plenty of pop up tents sprinkled throughout the parking lot for both the ride and drive section and the display only area for everyone to hide from the sun while talking about EVs. Our free raffle prizes donated by both Space Coast EV Drivers club members and each of the exhibitors were a huge hit. With a drawing every 10 minutes we were able to keep the place very active with attendees. The ride and drives were very popular and attendees agreed this event should be held more than once per year and preferably in the cooler months.
