Friday dawned beautifully with no rain in sight. The event has dealt with massive rain in the past so this was a beautiful site for the Chamber of Commerce and On the Beach Productions, LLC. Just before noon the Veterans’ Appreciation ride came in from the National Museum of the Marine Corps in Quantico, VA.

A number of motorcycles ride on the street.
