Event ReportThe management team at Yark Auto worked with Ford HQ to bring an F150 Lightning and a Mach e GT to the event at their Ford dealership. Of course, these two vehicles were the highlight of the event with other participant vehicles outside... in the rain. So attendees stayed inside with the food (individually packaged snacks and beverages) and the cool vehicles that they could climb into and ask questions. Current EV drivers found gathering spots and had conversations about EV life and how exciting this time is for those who love EVs. We shared our lifestyle knowledge with attendees who were curious.
The event was held from 3-7p with there being a strong group gathered until the last half hour.
13ABC new covered the event during their 4, 5 and 6p news, including a live segment.
We were overwhelmed by the number of visitors and conversations during the busiest times of the event and did the best we could with photos. Most were taken at the beginning and the end of the event.
