Looking for an afternoon of fun on Kentucky Lake? Join hundreds of lake lovers on boats and jet skis for the Paris-Henry County Chamber of Commerce “Water Fun Run,” sponsored by Solar Fields, on Saturday, July 15th. This poker run on the water will take you to Cypress Springs, The Breakers, Buchanan Resort, Fat Daddy’s, Pleasant View, Paris Landing State Park Marina, Brownfield Riverside Resort, Lakeview Cottage and Marina. A bonus stamp can be purchased at Paris Landing check-in for $10. In all, participants have the opportunity to get 13 total cards. Players must visit at least 5 Marinas for their chance to win one of three $500.00 grand prizes. Paris Landing State Park Marina hosts check-ins at 3:00 pm, 4:00 pm, or 5:00 pm where you’ll draw cards and find out which lucky player ends up with the best 5 card hand.
Decorate your boat with the “Rock the Run” Theme to add to the fun for a chance to win a gift certificate. Prizes will be awarded for first, second, and third place.
Also, for every $10 a participant spends at a Mariana, they will be provided a pirate coin at the volunteer table. At check-in those coins will be swapped for a chance to win a 26qt Orca Cooler sponsored by Trolinger’s in Paris.
“This is the Chamber of Commerce’s biggest fundraiser of the year and is such a fun way to explore Kentucky Lake and all that our wonderful marians have to offer. It is such a great summer event that brings a lot of friends from out of town,” commented Rachel Steedly, Interim Director of the Chamber. “This event allows us to put several hundred boats in multiple marinas throughout the day. We encourage you to buy lunch and a souvenir while you are there!”
