Despite having rain early and late with sprinkles in between we had a constant stream of attendees from the adjacent parking lots in a busy shopping center. We are certain a sun filled day would have brought many more lookers and shoppers.There was a steady flow of test rides, in all the makes represented, on a predetermined 2 mile course.
Held in conjunction with The Fossil-free Energy Fair was a good tie-in. Visitors to the car show were treated to learning about charging their plug-in's with renewable energy, and visitors to the Energy Fair were introduced to the magic of EV's.
Although it was disappointing that more manufacturers were not there, both Nissan and Tesla were and did an excellent job. There were no civic leaders or other notables in attendance.
One of the City Captains, Paula Slomer, posted a series of photos on the event website:
