Kingston Poker Run returns for 36th year – Kingston | Globalnews.ca


The annual Kingston Poker Run sees boaters and fans from far and wide to catch a glimpse at some of the world’s finest speed boats and to have a shot at the grand prize.

People from as close as down the road and as far as California made their way to Kingston this week to take in the spectacle that is the 36th annual Kingston Poker Run.
The annual event sees some of the world’s finest offshore boats descend on the city for a chance at making a pretty penny, while having some fun along the way.
“We invented the sport back in the late ’80s. We brought it from Kingston to the U.S.A., and since then, there are over 200 Poker Run events happening worldwide,” said Bill Taylor, founder of the Poker Run.
The game of chance sees boats travel to five different points through the Thousand Islands channel, from Kingston as far as Brockville and around the way, and at each point, the boaters collect a card.
