National Drive Electric Week Kennett Square (Mushroom Festival) was hosted by MD Volt Inc. and Eastern Electric Vehicle Club (EEVC) in downtown Kennett Square, PA on Broad Street at the 30th Annual Mushroom Festival Antique and Classic Car Show. The highlight of the event was a 1916 Rauch and Lang Electric Car driven and displayed by Jeff Pollock, volunteer/driver for the Marshall Steam Museum (about 7 miles away). We reached a large number of people walking through to get to the main festival area. Also unique to the event, were a 2008 BMW Mini-E (on lease as part of an ongoing vehicle-to-grid (V2G) demonstration project by The University of Delaware) and a Chevrolet S-10 EV pickup with a bed that could raise to show the lithium batteries below. On breaks, EV owners walked the festival, shopped, and got tasty mushroom food items, like fried mushrooms, mushroom soup and more, making it an event fun for the whole family. A proclamation was delivered by Mayor Matthew Fetick's office.
