Yachats is one of those vibrant small towns where there always seems to be something going on. But this Sunday, Sept. 17, the atmosphere will be even more charged than normal thanks to the Drive Electric Yachats event, running from 10 am to 3 pm at the Commons Picnic Shelter.
Held to coincide with National Drive Electric Week, the event offers guests the chance to learn all about electric vehicles and even take one for a spin.
The Commons Picnic Shelter is located at 441 Hwy. 101 N.
Running from September 9 to 17, National Drive Electric Week is a nationwide celebration to heighten awareness of the widespread availability of plug-in vehicles and highlight the benefits of all-electric and plug-in hybrid-electric cars, trucks, motorcycles and more.
Organizers are still registering electric vehicle owners who would like to show their vehicles at the event or offer them for test drives. For more details, call 541-968-6089 or e mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
