Event Report

Three vehicles -- a Tesla Model 3, Tesla Model X, and Chevrolet Bolt -- participated in the Fishbowl Parade. When the pace of the parade allowed, the Model X stopped and opened the falcon-wing doors, which was very popular with the bystanders and those on the reviewing stand. At the end of the parade, we distributed a number of pens, a mesh bag, and a water bottle to interested parties.
At the Sheriff's D. A. R. E. Day event, only the Model X was present. We opened the falcon-wing doors on request and distributed some fact sheets on available EV models. Several sheriff's deputies were interested in various aspects of the "care and feeding" of an EV, and we conversed with them at length.
