Wing-Ding 2014 Coming to Madison

Posted:

MADISON (WKOW) -- Madison is welcoming back a big motorcycle rally.    

Wing-Ding 36 will be held at the Alliant Energy Center in July of next year.

It's the annual convention for the Gold Wing Road Riders Association.

Madison has hosted the event four times before and every time, officials say it provides a nice boost to the local economy.

"We estimate over the five times the Gold Wingers have come to our community, they've contributed over $11 million during the days that they're here. Which is a huge, huge number," says Deb Archer, President, CEO of GMCVB.

The Greater Madison Convention and Visitors Bureau says it's expected to bring in nearly $3.5 million.
