Escanaba is excited to welcome riders, enthusiasts, and onlookers to its “best rally yet.”

ESCANABA, Mich.—Bikers are coming next year to the Upper Peninsula.

The Escanaba area will be the site of a three-day July rally by the Great Lakes Harley Owners Group. It is expected to bring thousands of Harley-Davidson motorcycle riders and enthusiasts to Delta County.

The planning process began with a meeting last week at the U.P. state fairgrounds, The Daily Press reported.

“We are very, very excited to be here,” rally committee chairman Chris Williams said.

The last time Harley riders were in Escanaba for a rally was in 2010.

“Our goal is to make sure you leave here in July with the feeling that this was your best rally yet,” said local Chamber of Commerce director Vickie Micheau.

The rally will include a parade and block party in Escanaba. The dates are July 22-24.
