Agents from the state Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control, working the event with the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s office, had made six arrests for drug charges, Bracco said.

There had not been any medical-aid calls for service in the first three hours, Bracco said.

Saturday attendance is expected to be significantly larger than Friday’s, which drew more than 16,000 people and resulted in the sheriff’s office arresting seven on a variety of charges, including drunk in public, possession of illegal drugs and outstanding warrants.
