2008 N.C. State HOG Rally plans giant Salisbury parade

Next week, more than 1,000 Harley-Davidson motorcycles will descend on Salisbury for the three-day 2008 N.C. State HOG Rally, organizers of the event say.
And the HOG (Harley Owners Group) Rally will end June 28 with an impressive Farewell To Salisbury Parade through Spencer and Salisbury, according to the Rowan County Convention & Visitors Bureau.
Rally organizers expect Harley owners from 25 states and two Canadian provinces to gather at Tilley Harley-Davidson for the rally, which begins June 26, next Thursday.
Tilley Harley-Davidson, located at 653 Bendix Drive, just east of Interstate 85, will host various events and vendors that Thursday and Friday and the ending ceremonies that Saturday evening.
About 4:45 p.m. June 28, the motorcycles will depart from Park Plaza shopping center on Salisbury Avenue in downtown Spencer. The N.C. State HOG Rally parade will proceed south on North Main Street into Salisbury around 5 p.m., turn left at the Square onto East Innes Street and proceed to Tilley Harley-Davidson.
“This will be the crowning jewel for the NC State HOG Rally, a Farewell to Salisbury Parade,” according to the Visitors Bureau.
“Everyone, young and old, is invited to come out and watch this massive gathering of Harley-Davidson motorcycles saying ‘Farewell to Salisbury.’ ”
Lesley Pullium, of the Visitors Bureau, said the name of the parade is not an indication the group won’t return to Salisbury in the future, only that the 2008 meeting is ending.
