Car cruises are a popular weekend getaway for many, but how often do you get to take a spin in an expensive electric car?

Marcellus Outreach Butler, a Butler County nonprofit group promoting alternative energy, will host its 3rd annual Fossil Free Energy Fair at the lower Kohl’s parking lot at Cranberry Commons in Cranberry Township on Saturday featuring a $100,000 Tesla and other hybrids available for rides.

The Cranberry Township Emergency Medical Service is hoping to destroy 50 car seats this week. 

“The thing that people fail to realize is that car seats have expiration dates,” said Cranberry Twp. EMS Deputy Chief Ted Fessides. “Typically it’s seven years from the date of manufacture.”

In an effort to get old and otherwise unsafe car seats off the roads the township will be conducting an “Old Car Seat Take Back” from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday, May 27 at 20727 Route 19 in Cranberry Township.
