We had 5 Zero Motorcycles on display outside and started the day with #CO2Fre Nissan LEAF, a Volt and 3 Electric Ford Focuses, as well as a Kia Soul EV. Eventually a silver Roadster showed up as well as my COSPLAYing friend and her photographer and videographer and we took some pictures in the rain and indoors (with the not-electric bikes). Not too many people came for test drives in the rain, just one in the Volt and one in the BMW i3 that BMW of Fairfax provided. Coleman grilled Hot Dogs and served yummy lemonade. As soon as the weather cleared the cosplayers and photographers had to go but we did eventually have a couple more LEAFs and a couple of Tesla Model S show up after the Roadster had left. The Zero got many more test drives after it dried out. We stopped the test drives around 15:30 (3p30) and just chatted with folks until closing at 17:00 (5p00).
Almost no-one was interested in the the free Sunglasses or Frisbees. Nobody every wants a bumper sticker.
