Wing Ding Returns to Tulsa

For the first time since 1991 the annual gathering of the Gold Wing Road Rider Associations, Wing Ding 31, will return to Tulsa.
“GWRRA is very pleased to be returning to Tulsa,” said GWRRA Executive Director Melissa Eason. “The hospitality and cooperation shown by the city and the Convention and Visitors Bureau has been overwhelming and we are excited to host our next event in this beautiful city next July.”
The 31st annual event, and world’s largest single-marquee social organization for owners and riders of Honda Gold Wing/Valkyrie motorcycles, will bring more than 8,000 individuals to Tulsa over the Fourth of July holiday weekend with an estimated economic impact of $7.6 million for the Tulsa region.
“Gold Wing is recognized world-wide,” said Suzanne Stewart, senior vice president and executive director for the Tulsa Convention and Visitors Bureau. “Their presence in Tulsa for the Fourth of July is certainly an added bonus for our community who will benefit from their visit.
The four-day, annual event will be held at Expo square where visitors can browse the busy aisles of the largest Gold Wing trade show in the world. Additionally, talented riders will compete for trophies and honors in skill events and precision drill team maneuvers.
About 700 Gold Wing riders will also parade through Tulsa on at 5 p.m July 4, beginning at Expo Square and following 15th Street to the west bank of the Arkansas River ending at the RiverWest Festival Park in time for the fireworks show.
