Two local electric bicycle dealers attended, but in spite of invitations, no electric car dealers came because they had no EVs on hand to show. EV owners were identified by blue ribbons around their necks. About 75 members of the public attended during the 3-hour event to ask questions of the EV owners, see the vehicles up close, and get printed information about EV options and charging.
