It was a beautiful day for the event. Beautiful enough for a sunburn lol. We had quite a different selection of purely electric vehicles. Was expecting some hybrids but they didn’t show up. Also tried to get a new Nissan Leaf and and a Jaguar iPace but they weren’t able to make it. We had a business display a Leaf to show that an EV works for a business too. All the test rides were done in Tesla’s.
Not a huge amount of foot traffic due to the Easter weekend but all the customers going to Natural Grocers noticed us.
