We started off the NDEW event Sunday 9/18 /2016 by holding a 20 minute parade of electric vehicles around the local area down Ogden Ave. and Route 59 roads circling back to the Naperville test track. EVeryone had a blast! Then for the next few hours we had a steady stream of guests interested in electric vehicles come and talk to the owners and drivers of EVs, many of the volunteers taking guests around the car test track. Great Music was provided by a Fox Valley Electric Auto Association volunteer and with the gorgeous weather it was considered a success by all.
