Drive Electric Earth Day
Apr 27, 2019
|Day:||Saturday, April 27, 2019 NOTE: this event has already happened, find current-year events on the events page.|
Our event was rescheduled and suffered from this. Originally with 27 scheduled vehicles and attached to a lively Earth Day Festival - it was postponed due to rain. The rescheduled day was cloudy, light rain at times, and very windy. Many of the cars and some of the volunteer staff could not be there. Other chose that day not to show due to the weather.
I will say that the hearty souls that did come out - both the EV owners as well as the attendees were there for a reason. Many who came wanted to test drive or ride in cars and were thinking of purchasing within the year.
We were disappointed but felt it was worth showing up and to brighten our day a Tesla owner came to had purchased his car after test driving at our previous event. He took many people out and let two high school boys sit in his car - they were so thrilled.
I hope our next event for NDEW will have owners that purchased from this event. That will make the hours planning that didn't turn into a reality due to weather this year - worth it all. We can never give up; we make a difference!
No great photos as we could barely set up our tent due to the winds and trying to keep everything nailed down and working with a skeleton crew - we were happy to be there and make sure that the drivers had coffee to stay warm!
