Welcoming KAYAKS, CANOES & PADDLE BOARDS… all paddlers are invited to join Presque Isle Partnership for a day of fun on the waterways of Presque Isle! The 5.5 mile poker run takes participants on an unforgettable journey through the Presque Isle Lagoons, Marina Lake, Presque Isle Bay, Horseshoe Pond, Misery Bay and Graveyard Pond.

The event begins at 9:00am on Saturday, June 10 when paddlers enter the water at the Lagoons Boat Launch on Presque Isle State Park. Groups of 20 boats will launch every 15 minutes until 12:30pm when the last group departs. Participants will stop at five pre-determined locations along the route, drawing a card at each location. Individuals with the best and worst five-card poker hands win cash prizes. The event wraps up with an after-party at OASIS PUB & TIKI BAR!
