    The Metro-Orlando National Drive Electric event will be occurring on Saturday, September 20, 2014 from 10am – 2pm at Lake Concord Park (at Casselberry City Hall) 95 Triplet Lake Drive
    , Casselberry FL. Why the change in venue from Lake Eola? Because we needed more space – plus the City of Casselberry and their Farmer’s Market have offered to partner with us this year. The city has allowed us access to power outlets, so recharging shouldn’t be a problem. Using the attached map: section 1 – 3 can be used for display vehicles (section 2 for Ride and Drive Deployment). If you plan to participate, or attend - please register on the website. Additional information provided below and updates will follow:
