The EV Club of the South invites you to kick off Drive Electric Week at Atlantic Station's Central Park area on Saturday September 13, 2014. This is the same site as last year's Plugin Day event. East and West District Avenues between 18th and 19th Street for the display of plug-in vehicles again this year. Because space is limited in Central Park, we will again have additional space for you to show off your EV in the parking area between Target and the EV Charging Spot on 17th St. The event will begin at this parking area at 9:00 AM and then some vehicles will move to Central Park to set up for the 11:00 AM official start. Both events will end at 3:00 PM.
We are limited to about 40 cars in Central Park. We would like to have a wide variety of EVs in there, but due to the tight quarters, we can't have cars coming and going from this site. If you would like to display your car in Central Park, please let us know that you can be there from 11:00-3:00. We will select cars from those who can stay. The rest of us can talk about our favorite drives at the larger parking lot. The parking lot entrance is on 18th Street just west of State Street and across from the Target Store.
