(FOX NEWS) – Despite the coronavirus pandemic, tens of thousands of motorcyclists will descend upon Daytona Beach, Florida for the city’s annual Bike Week event.
The city has reached an agreement with local bars for 60% indoor capacity in return for permits necessary for temporary outdoor sales and entertainment.
“I’m grateful to be open for Bike Week, grateful that the city allowed the vendors and the full Bike Week thing,” said Bobby Honeycutt, owner of Froggy’s Saloon, told The Daytona Beach News-Journal as the 10-day event began Friday. The bar is limited to 102 customers inside, but is serving from tubs and bars outside.
The Daytona Regional Chamber of Commerce, which organizes the event, estimates 300,000 to 400,000 motorcyclists will attend. It typically draws 500,000.
