This was our first time officially participating in the event and we thought it went very well. We had multiple people from the area who drive electric vehicles come out for the event and discussed reasons who they chose to purchase an electric vehicle and the benefits they have seen from doing so. We also had multiple dealerships such as Mike Anderson Chevrolet, Nissan North America, and BMW of Schererville at the event to promote their vehicles.
