You can really only get so wet, and if you’re riding a motorcycle today without rain gear, your future isn’t looking much drier.
Tomorrow looks a little better with temperatures in the mid 70s and only a 20 percent chance of rain. Nonetheless, OC BikeFest soldiers on.
“Blue Oyster Cult should be arriving momentarily, and will go on as scheduled,” event organizer Cliff Sutherland said.
Those enjoying the bands, the food and browsing the vendors didn’t appear to mind sidestepping a puddle or two.
Most, if not all of the shops are open, the vendors are selling and business is conducting itself much as it would if there weren’t a bit of mist in the air.
“We’re doing the best we can to make sure everyone has as good a time possible, stays safe and enjoys the event we put together for them,” Sutherland said.
BikeFest continues tomorrow until 4 p.m. Admission is $15 if you haven’t been in before — the re-entry policy is a cornerstone of the event. Beginning on Thursday the one-time entry fee would allow a person to enter and exit freely. As the end draws near the bang for the buck is diminished, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty still left to do.
Besides, how dry were you anyway?
