COLUMBIA— A national motorcycle rally is expected to draw up to 30,000 people to Columbia next summer.

Columbia officials say the National Bikers Roundup will hold its annual rally Aug. 1-8 at the Boone County Fairgrounds.

Lorah Steiner, executive director of the Columbia Convention and Visitors Bureau, says the rally could have at least a $3 million economic impact on the area.

The Columbia Tribune reports that the National Bikers Roundup was founded in 1977 .

Steiner said residents will see a lot of motorcyclists and hear a lot of noise, but most of the activity should end around 11:30 p.m. or midnight.
