Hello all. For those of you who have been there in the past, I have a couple of questions about the upcoming Bakersfield Bash.

1) Is the best day Friday? And Saturday it's all over before noon? That seems strange considering most folks work on weekdays and have the weekends off.
2) I've read that it's mostly a sign show. Would it be worth my time if all I'm looking for is pump parts? I'm asking because the NWS is predicting rain/snow Friday night and rain on Saturday, and I get rusty when I get wet.

Thanks for your input.

Yes, Friday is the best day and MANY sellers leave Friday afternoon. It is mostly a sign show and usually only a couple of pumps and/or pump parts but things change year to year. You are right about the weather. If it does rain/snow Hwy 5 can close and be a mess. Good luck
