“Tailpipe-Free” Electric Car Tailgate Party at Valencia College West
September 12, 2015 @ 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM| Free
Join the folks at Valencia College on Saturday, Sept. 12, as they host an Electric Car Rally – to spread the gospel about electric cars.
The electric vehicle rally will be held from 1 to 5 p.m. in Parking Lot F at Valencia’s West Campus, located at 1800 S. Kirkman Road, Orlando.
This event, which has been held at Lake Eola Park for the past several years, has moved to Valencia College’s West Campus. At Valencia, Dr. Lisa Macon (Valencia’s dean of engineering, computer science and IT – and also Queen of the Nerds) has become a Chevy Volt owner and an enthusiastic EV-angelist.
At the event – which some call a “tailpipe-free” tailgate party — you can meet and talk to Macon and more than 20 other EV-angelists, including the owners of Nissan Leafs, Chevy Volts, BMW i3 and Tesla Model S vehicles.
Speakers at the event will address the science behind electric cars, conservation and the environment.
Dunkin’ Donuts has donated snacks, while the campus food service has donated bottled water.
