After three decades at Pigeon Forge, the Tennessee Honda Gold Wing Road Riders Association Convention is shifting to East Ridge.
The group has booked Camp Jordan Park for the event April 25-27.
It will also feature a parade of an expected 250-300 bikes through town, including a route from the park to Spring Creek Road, South Terrace, McBrien Road and Ringgold Road.
Aaron Roberson, marketing director for Chattanooga's Southern Honda Powersports, said, "I'm a born and raised East Ridge boy and I wanted to bring the convention and parade here.
Powersports, located at 1394 Workman Road, is the largest Honda dealer in the world.
State Association leader Ron Janes was also present for the announcement to the East Ridge City Council.
Bill Breneman said the group has picked the Best Western Plus for the host hotel, but will be filling up other hotels and motels in East Ridge and North Georgia.
Some 2,000 delegates are expected for the event from a wide area of the Southeast.
