Enjoy Emerald Coast Boat Week!Posted on 08/16/15
Mark your calendars and make sure to carve out some time for the annual Emerald Coast Boat Week and Poker Run. (Yes, that means take a little break from shopping for the perfect home for sale in Destin and hit the beach to enjoy some charitable fun!)
Boats galore are gassing up for a full week of water-related events to raise money for youth-oriented charities. Don’t worry, you don’t have to have a boat to partake in the fun. There’s plenty of land related activities throughout the week to keep you occupied.
Head to Helen Back on Okaloosa Island for the kick off party on Wednesday, August 19th and enjoy beach bingo, casino games and the Emerald Coast Bellantian Dancers. And don’t miss the Captain’s Party on Friday, August 21st at AJ’s Seafood and Oyster Bar. The events don’t stop there! Saturday the Emerald Coast Convention Center opens its doors at 6pm for the Emerald Coast Poker Run with a 70’s inspired theme and an all you can eat buffet. The even better news? It’s not too late to register for this event!
Everyone who participates in the 2015 Emerald Coast Poker Run has a chance to win a 2015 Ford F-150 and a 2015 Harley-Davidson Street Glide. Proceeds will be donated to the Emerald Coast Foundation, a local non-profit that supports youth organizations and children’s charities in Okaloosa County.
We hope to see you all there for a full week of good ole fashion fun!
