Event Report

In addition to my local Capital District EV Drivers group members, we had about a dozen EV drivers come from other areas, 150+ miles away to attend our event. They said that they chose our event over closer events that were not as well promoted and attended as ours. I had registrants meet me 30 minutes prior to the start of the event at picturesque Cohoes Falls, where I sorted the cars by model and lined them up for the parade. The 30 car EV parade vehicles all had 'drive electric' window flags and the procession concluded 2 miles away by making a grand entrance to the event at the 11:00 am start time. New York State Congressman Paul Tonko made a surprise visit to he event, where he shook hands and made a short speech to the attendees. He said he supports alternate fuel vehicles and the necessary EV charging infrastructure in NY State. Nemer VW set a new E-Golf and a salesman for test drives, as well as Fuccillo Nissan with a new LEAF SL.
