This Free and Family friendly event is made possible by a grant from Electrify America and the partnership with National Drive Electric Week. There is plenty to do at Rogers center after you check out the cars, such as feeding the fish in the trout ponds, looking over the bridge for turtles and carp and walking the paved and wooded trails.
