Event Report

We had an awesome EV festival, the participating car owners were great, the employees of venue, Anaina Hou Community Park incredibly helpful. 

We got to meet with many people from the local community and shared information about our electric vehicles.  About 50 people were very seriously interested and asked many in-depth questions, some stayed an hour and longer. Everyone looked happy and had fun.

About 150 more people got various levels of exposure, some just slowly walking by the line of EVs looking at them, some asking a few questions, and some admiring the Teslas. People could take rides in a Tesla Model X, and test drive a Nissan Leaf.  

We handed out free home made cupcakes, promotional materials and lots of literature and informational flyers, many mahalos to NDEW, the sponsors and KIUC our local utility for providing the giveaways and flyers, the directional signs and banners we got were super helpful too . 

We held the EVent between a Farmer's Market and a Minigolf course, so a few people were exposed to electric vehicles who would not have seen our EVs otherwise. Even the weather was nice, mostly blue skies and not too hot.
