My guess, not having been there: If it has a beginner/citizen category and doesn't require a license, nobody's going to care what you wear. They're not going to take you (or anyone else in the citizen/beginner category) seriously, but then again, if you showed up with $5,000 worth of bike and gear, they still wouldn't take you serioiusly, so don't sweat it. (Lots of people have more money than they do fitness or skill). Go ride, have fun, do good. If the cat 1-2-3 races are run at a separate time from the citz/beginner race, try to schedule to watch some of them and see what they look like (in terms of speed, not fashion).
Look in the Road Cycling, in the Racing subforum, and there's some very informative posts on racing in general, some of which won't apply to this event.
