|Time:||11 am - 2 pm|
Auxillary Parking Lot at Fairfield Train Station
140 Mill Plain Road
Fairfield, CT 06824
Attended by Fairfield First Selectman Mike Tetreau, State Reps Cristin McCarthy Vahey and Laura Devlin, State Senator Tony Hwang. Although we advertised it as heavily as possible, it helped draw in the crowd that we parked a BWM i8 on the sidewalk and opened the wing doors. Also, a Tesla came from NJ that was #185...that is one of the lowest #s around on the east coast. Also, a guy came with his Porsche 318 Spyder...he drove about 40 miles for the event on a car that only had a few hundred. One of the big hits was the electric bikes provided by Zane's Cycles...they were test driven all day.
