Overland Expo West 2021 Day 2 Wrap-Up

The weather Overland Expo West 2021 Saturday, Day 2 was a bit cooler than Day 1 when the gates opened at 8 a.m. Despite the chillier temperatures,  there was no less excitement in the air. Thousands more attendees filed through the main gates and visited the more-than-400 exhibitors.

Fans also filled training sessions and classrooms. The Overland Essentials classroom was especially busy, jammed with overlanders keen to learn new skills.

Even more attendees queued up for a ride-along in the all-new Ford Bronco than on day 1. Others drove the new Harley-Davidson Pan America motorcycle. After honing their skills with the new Pan America, attendees headed over to the Moto Slow Race.

At the same time, thousands of fans and exhibitors attended Toyo Tires’ Happy Hour and the Equipt and KC Adventure After Parties alike.

Later, there was standing-room only in the Yakima Overland Film Festival in the Winnebago Theater for the Overlander Film Festival shorts.
