More than 500 visitors and their RVs will be rolling into town beginning Aug. 1 as Monaco International celebrates its 30th anniversary with a motor coach rally at The Mill Casino • Hotel & RV Park.
This will be the first time the national organization will hold its anniversary rally on Oregon’s South Coast. Monaco International is a chapter of the Family Motor Coach Association, which held a successful rally for over 1,200 participants at The Mill in 2012.
Formal activities for the event begin Aug. 6, but most participants will arrive several days early to take advantage of regional attractions.
“Hosting an event like this is a great privilege for The Mill and an even greater opportunity for our communities to show what we have to offer travelers to our region,” said Terri Porcaro, general manager of The Mill Casino • Hotel & RV Park. “Visitors at the 2012 event were thrilled with how they were received by our communities, which helped inspire Monaco International to bring their rally to the South Coast.”
Although the event is open to FMCA members only, a vendor show and display of RV coaches is open to the public Aug. 6-8.
The Mill has planned a variety of activities for rally participants including a poker run to shops and local venues in North Bend and Coos Bay. Tours of local attractions will be available to give visitors a taste of what the region has to offer. Members of the Coquille Indian Tribe will demonstrate native cooking techniques and discuss Tribal culture at a traditional salmon bake.
