LeAnn Rimes will be the opening performer for the Harley Owners Group’s CLUB H.O.G. OKC rally at Oklahoma State Fair Park in Oklamhoma City June 26-27.
Rimes kicks off the rally’s opening night with a performance Friday at 8 p.m. at the fairground’s Harley Stage, where Kansas will close the show the following afternoon at 1:30 p.m. In between, there will be a full schedule of additional musical performers, including D.B. Bryant, The Outlaws, Stage Country, Dead or Alive and Silver Bullet.
Other highlights of CLUB H.O.G. OKC include the Ride-In custom bike show featuring the Willie G. award on Friday at 3pm, motorcycle stunt and drill teams in the Stunt Zone, and the Wall of Ink tattoo contest and much more.
“We are really excited by the reception we have received from the folks in Oklahoma City, and we expect to have a great turnout for our annual rally,” said Benny Suggs, General Manager of the Harley Owners Group. “As we used to say in the Navy, it’s going to be ‘Sierra Hotel.’!”
While the concerts and many of the activities at the fairgrounds are exclusive to registered rally participants, there will be much for the general public to see and do throughout the weekend, such as Harley-Davidson factory demo rides (open to all licensed motorcyclists), the Biker Mania vendor mall and the Harley-Davidson traveling museum. On Saturday morning, the OKC Parade of Harleys will depart the State Fair Park at 9 a.m. and make its way to the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum, Bricktown, and return to the fairgrounds by 10 a.m. A map of the parade route with various public viewing points is online at www.visitokc.com/hog.
In addition to the activities in and around the fairgrounds, the Bikes & Bricks Street Party—the largest street party ever hosted in Bricktown—will wrap up the weekend events, beginning at Noon on Saturday, June 27. Free to the public and CLUB H.O.G. OKC rally attendees, the party features 12 bands on three stages, Bikes & Bricks merchandise, beverage tents, delicious restaurants and free motorcycle parking throughout the streets of Bricktown. Other area activities include events at local Harley-Davidson dealers H-D World and Fort Thunder H-D throughout the weekend.
