|Time:||11 am–4 pm|
Alamo Drafthouse Cinema

Ashburn, VA 20147
We had Bruce's Z3 Conversion and 4 LEAFs as well as Victor and his Ford Focus Electric and a Tesla Model S. It was nice weather and windy but despite this the Frisbees just couldn't move. These items are definitely not popular and I can't give them away. Bruce gave one test drive in his Z3 but the driver scraped the lower bumper while parking. Fortunately we could spot no damage. Most folks couldn't stay past noon but Victor stayed quite late with his Focus Electric and Bruce and I with #CO2Fre manned the event until the end. We think we sold one Plugin Prius. And the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema was very supportive and loaned us a table for all our literature. All in all, a nice, low-key event in a very new, EV-friendly location.
