Calif. Motorhome Rally Draws 1,300 Rigs
At least 1,300 motorhomes are expected to roll into the Riverside County Fairgrounds in Indio, Calif., for the 26th annual Western Motor Home Association Rally, the Desert Sun of Palm Springs reported.
The event kicks off Wednesday and runs through Sunday. More than 3,000 people — about 1,500 families — are expected to participate in the five-day rally, which includes a parade scheduled for Thursday.
The rally and parade are open to the public. A day pass costs $10.
The Western Motor Home Association is part of Family Motor Coach Association, an international organization for motorhome owners based in Cincinnati. FMCA has nearly 80,000 active member families.
On Tuesday, one big coach after another rumbled into the fairgrounds as volunteers and members readied for the opening of the rally.
“This is one of the largest — if not the largest — in the U.S.,” Rick Ricordati, Family Motor Coach Association, national vice president, western area said. “We’re pretty proud of it.”
