The event occurred simultaneously to and on the grounds of - Cambridge's Danehy Park Family Day. Thousands of families attended the event, passing by and/or engaging with the EV event. The ride & drive portion of the event was sponsored by a local utility (Eversource) employing the help of a communications strategy firm (Reach Strategies). Local environmental groups, consumer alliances, dealerships and EV enthusiasts helped further enrich the information and personal accounts available at the event. In addition to the multitude of families, athletes, and park goers who attended, there were also City Council Members and City Department Division Directors. A class of local college students attended the event and held interviews with EV owners and advocates. It was a very successful day!
