This year we partnered with an existing weekly farmer's market that is well attended. All local dealerships with plug-ins in stock, except BMW, showed their cars and provided sponsorship money to support the event. Tesla's Model X was the biggest head turner with folks sticking around to see the S and 3. Most attendees didn't know other manufacturers offered plug-ins, so education was the big priority.
