Pella Applies to Host Harley Rally

The City of Pella has applied to be a host site for Iowa’s Harley Owners Group (H.O.G.) Rally in 2011. The decision to apply was approved at last week’s Pella City Council meeting, after a request was submitted by the Pella Convention and Visitors Bureau and Fred Kreykes of the Molengracht Partners.

Pella Police Chief Michael Marcinkowski says hosting the event is an economic windfall for the city, and says the crowd that typically attends the rally is not at all like the sterotypes associated with motorcycle rallies. Pella previously hosted an Iowa Harley Owners Group Rally in 2004.
