Snapshots From The Fair: Vendors Juice It Up As Temps Near 100

Brian Bull

As the Oregon Country Fair commences, organizers are urging visitors to keep hydrated, stay cool, and pace themselves. While many temps are going to be in the upper 90s,  that heat wave means cold cash for those selling wares that can keep fairgoers cool and refreshed.  KLCC's Brian Bull checked in with one such vendor, Orange You Glad I Didn't Say 'Banana'?, right as the admission gates were opening this morning.

Dan Riley and Brianna Potts prepare to make what they expect to be 100 gallons of freshly -squeezed orange juice today.

In this audio snapshot, juice proprietors Brianna Potts and Dan Riley discuss their operation, which will likely involve vast amounts of OJ before the day is through.  With hot summer temps bearing down on crowds, vendors selling cold refreshments should expect some brisk business.
