Springtime Tallahassee Poker Run Kicks in Fund

By  | 

This is the second annual Springtime Tallahassee poker run. About 70 motorcyclists participated in this year's event.

They raise money for the parade's insurance costs with their entrance fees while also competing in a friendly little game of poker.

Co-Organizer Manny Gonzalez explains, "There were five stops along the way where they picked a card out of the bag, playing cards. Five cards, that makes a poker hand, and the best hand wins.”

"Springtime Tallahassee is a good event for all of Tallahassee and I have a lot of friends and fellow riders that are riding in it today," adds participant David Wiggins.

Event organizers say they had a great turnout and raised more money than they expected.
