A major RV rally is returning to Redmond this summer and is expected to bring millions of dollars to Redmond and surrounding area businesses. Executive Director of the Redmond Chamber of Commerce, Eric Sande says they're happy to have "The Rally" here in Central Oregon: "The vendors who come and stay to put on the show, stay in the hotels so it'll increase occupancy during their stay here and of course the rental cars do very well and they also ship a lot of stuff home so the shipping companies do very well the UPS's and so on. So it's a wide range event that covers pretty much the whole spectrum of the community." He says it's not just a time for people who already own an RV to get together. There will be shows, classes and other activities for the general public, including organized hikes bike rides and the 8th Annual Dog Show, "Oregon Tails". They expect about 3800 RV's to visit the area, including over a 1000 brand new units on display. The rally, sponsored by Dish Network runs from July 14-17.
