The head of Nissan North America's EV Marketing and Sales Strategy, John Arnesen flew in from Nashville TN to support our event. He provided many boxes of free LEAF labeled merchandise for attendees. We had six EV dealers displaying and providing test drives: LEAF, i3, B-Class, Smart ED, i-Miev, Fusion Energi, and three Zero Motorcycles. We started the event off with a 2 mile EV parade which lead all drivers to make a grand entrance at the show grounds simultaneously. This event was bigger and better than last year's event and showed excellent growth. WNYT News Channel 13 sent a camera crew to report at our event and aired a report on the 6:00 pm, 10:00 pm, and 11:00 pm news on Sunday night. On Monday morning it aired one more time at 5:30 am.
