The 1000 Islands region truly is a boaters paradise! The City of Kingston, Ontario has played host to PRA’s 1000 Islands Poker Run for many years and has always proved to be a fantastic host city for this all-star event that attracts thousands of spectators and some of the fastest boats in the world. This is one of the most anticipated events for both participants and spectators! More than 80 performance boats will dock in Kingston’s Confederation Basin Marina for public display Friday afternoon and Saturday morning. View the boats up close on Friday afternoon until 10 pm on the docks or catch the downtown street boat display and exhibits in the park.
The Jumbo movie screen will be on the street both nights showcasing poker run highlights and footage captured from the helicopter. Watch (and hear) the boats Saturday, August 5th at 10 am for the official poker run start or catch them upon their return approximately 2:30 pm – 3:30 pm.
The poker run card unveiling is also free to the public Saturday at 8 pm in front of the Blu Martini Restaurant and Bar, where the Jumbotron screen will show highlights of the action.
