Daytona Beach, FL - The decision’s been made. Daytona Beach city commissioners voted six to one against permitting outdoor vendors for Biketoberfest. Businesses will operate but no live bands, food & alcohol sales outside, or merchandise sales will be allowed. Commissioners against the permitting said it's irresponsible to promote large gatherings during a pandemic.
While that was happening, Ormond Beach city commissioners voted to permit outdoor vendors for Biketoberfest on the US 1 corridor. Open-air live music, memorabilia, food, and drink vendors will be allowed on private properties. Sites are required to take current COVID-19 precautions.
