National Drive Electric Week
Sep 20, 2014
|Day:||Saturday, September 20, 2014 NOTE: this event has already happened, find current-year events on the Attend page.|
During planning we had booked a band to perform for 4 hours. Partnered with the local Farmer's Market and had arranged for vehicle placement around the stage and farmers market area with heavy foot traffic. We had the Mayor and Commissioner's set to open the ceremony. Unfortunately, the day of the event a Nor'easter (heavy rain storm) hit Central Florida, which caused the band, Mayor and Farmer's Market to cancel. The Electric Car event occurred, as planned, thanks to the dedication of the local EV community and EV dealers from Tesla, Ford, Chevy and Mitsubishi. Many people planning to attend the Farmer's Market and others from the community that wanted to learn about electric transportation attended and it was a GREAT success. We received coverage from three leading local media outlets and all stories were positive. The city was happy with the turnout and offered to host the event anytime in the future.
The event is pending. Please visit the Attend page to find other National Drive Electric Week events.
