OC………WE’RE GOING TO EXPLORE. ;15

SEVERAL BUSINESSES SENT A JOINT LETTER TO FESTIVAL CHAIRMAN BRIAN HALL, STATING THEY OBJECT TO HAVING THEIR STOREFRONTS AND STREETS BLOCKED BY THE EVENT AND REQUEST THERE BE NO ATTEMPT TO HOLD THE EVENT THERE.

PHILLIPS UNDERSTANDS THEIR OBJECTIONS, BUT SAYS AWESOME BIKER NIGHTS NEEDS TO CHARGE ADMISSION AND CONTROL ENTRANCE TO THE AREA WHERE THEIR CONCERTS ARE TAKING PLACE:

OC………FROM HAPPENING. :13

THE OWNER OF ONE BUSINESS MENTIONED IN THAT LETTER, BOB NETTLETON OF BUFFALO ALICE, SAYS HE DOES NOT OPPOSE AWESOME BIKER NIGHTS AND WELCOMES THEM ON 4TH STREET.
