Heavy metal festival expects 50,000 per day


PRYOR, Okla. —

Local performer Thomas Martinez will return to Country Fever this year. Rogers said Martinez will be riding with the Blue Angels at an airshow in Norman June 6 as part of the “Oklahoma Rising” centennial promotion. Rogers said Martinez is one of the few celebrities scheduled to ride with the famous pilots.

Rogers said earlier this year a Bikes and Bulls motorcycle rally was held at the Fever facility.

“It rained that weekend so we had 600 to 700 people out there. It was a 21-and-over event. It was a biker event, but it went off without a hitch. It became more of a local event.”
