|11am - 3pm
|Central Middle School parking lot
1280 Fort Street
Victoria, BC V8V 3L2
The fourth year that DriveElectricVictoria has held an NDEW event, we rented the entire parking lot of a middle school on a Sunday. One little problem came up: the church across the street uses that lot without permission and the parishioners behaved very poorly towards our traffic marshal. But they were gone once our event was in full swing.
There were many, many positive comments throughout the day, lots and lots of thank-you’s from guests, and a few emails like this one: "I attended your event today. I found it very friendly and informative. Thank you to all of your club for putting on this event.” The “feeling” of the whole event was very relaxed and friendly and that was because all our volunteer owners and workers contributed in a positive way. We even had volunteer EV owners show up from out of town offering rides. What a great community!
About half our guests had never ridden in an EV before. That was our ultimate target market. Overall very happy how the event ran.
