We had a GREAT time at the Sonic Waves Music Festival at FIT this past weekend! We must have talked to 200 people about electric cars. The WFIT radio station did a good job getting the event well organized and invited some really great live bands to perform. We are looking forward to more awesome events like this on FIT’s campus. Make sure to look for future events on our upcoming events page to see when we’ll be at FIT or a place near you.
Here are several photos taken during setup and while the event was going on:
On Saturday Oct 26th we had six electric vehicles in the FIT homecoming parade. We had a great spot up near the front and after a special request we were put in front of the MG club so we didn’t have to “breathe their fumes”! We realized about two minutes into it that it was going slow enough where two people could have walked in front of our line of cars with our banner. It’s too bad we had already hung up the banner at our tent in the tailgating area at the end of the parade first thing that morning. But now we know!
After the parade we parked our cars next to each other in a line near our tent and table as usual. We had about 20-30 people come up to ask questions, sit in, and look at our cars. As usual most of the people learned the facts and challenged what they thought they knew about EVs. Some of the attendees let us know they would now consider buying one! Education and proliferation of EVs are two of the main reasons why we do these events so we call this one a success.
Here’s some pictures from the event and we are looking forward to the next events in November so we can show our EVs to even more people in the community and answer their questions with our real-world experience from driving these electric cars every day.
