The second annual “Fun in the Sun” Poker Paddle happens on the afternoon of the Tuscarawas River Canoe & Kayak Races at the new Canal Dover Riverfront Park in Dover, Ohio. Participants paddle canoes or kayaks to four locations along the banks of the scenic Tuscarawas River to draw poker cards.  The 5th and final card is obtained back on shore, where a dart is thrown at a corkboard full of poker cards.  Gift cards are given for the highest poker hands drawn.  Five-Card Stud rules apply.


Poker Paddle participants paddle up and down the river for approximately 2 miles.  Cost to play in 2017 is only $20 for 3 hands – that’s 3 chances to win!  There will be multiple winners and more than $1000 awarded in prizes!


This is a great event for families or couples to do together – get outside, get on the water, have some fun, maybe even win prize money!!  All the monies raised from this event go toward riverfront development in Dover, Ohio.


We hope to see you on Saturday, July 8, 2017!
