THUNDER BY THE BAY MUSIC & MOTORCYCLE FESTIVAL
Born To Ride Florida|February 2021
ONE OF THE BEST EVENTS TO ATTEND AT THE BEGINNING OF THE YEAR IS WITHOUT A DOUBT THUNDER BY THE BAY IN SARASOTA, FLORIDA.
Susan Hurst

This event is constantly bringing in the best of music, vendors, parties, contests, and more. I had the great opportunity to speak with Lucy Nicandri, the Festival Organizer and Executive Director for the Suncoast Charities for Children, about this year’s exciting event!

In terms of Covid-19, I asked Lucy what changes had to be made in planning this year’s Festival. Nicandri shared, “Expanded safety precautions and social distancing measures will be implemented for the safety and enjoyment of all who attend. The Festival has a dedicated Covid-19 page that clearly outlines this information. I strongly urge everyone reading this article to visit our website and read that informational page before they attend.”

Just some of the new safety precautions include installation of plexiglass at all bar serving areas, designated walk areas, masks are encouraged when social distancing is not possible, and hand sanitizer stations will be readily available. Lucy added, “I highly recommend that those attending the Festival bring a lawn chair or blanket to enjoy this year’s music. We want to avoid crowds standing in front of the stage for the health and safety of everyone.”
