Horry County officials say they have issued only about half as many permits to vendors for the Grand Strand's annual Harley-Davidson rally, compared to last year.
County spokeswoman Lisa Bourcier says that means the county will take in $200,000 less than expected.
She says only 233 vendors had purchased permits by the end of business yesterday. There were more than 500 vendors at last year's rally.
Organizers of the Carolina Harley-Davidson Dealers Association Myrtle Beach Rally say the permit price reduced the number of vendors.
Sandy Leone with Myrtle Beach Harley-Davidson says she does not expect many more permits to be purchased before the event starts tomorrow.
Horry County Police Chief Paul Gower says his officers will begin full patrols of rally hot spots tomorrow.
