Powerboats on Display at Faro Blanco Marina
The power boats participating in Stu Jones’ Winter Poker Run are scheduled to arrive Friday at around 4:30 at the newly opened Faro Blanco Resort & Yacht Club in Marathon. Though the event is typically geared toward paying participants and their rides, this year’s Air-Land-Sea format Poker Run has a lot to offer spectators in the Florida Keys. Visitors are welcome to park at the resort and walk down to the marina to check out the power boats on display, free of admission. Throughout the evening, there will be music and a live radio show, including brief attendee interviews. Throughout the weekend-long event, Florida Powerboat Club, the event organizer, will be doing filming and interviews for their Powerboating in Paradise TV Series on Sunsports. And Saturday, there will be some fun watersport events that visitors can even take place in!
Eat, Drink, & Be Merry at The New Lighthouse Grill
The Lighthouse Grill at Faro Blanco is now open (yay!) and Poker Run participants and the viewing public are invited to make dinner reservations or relax and enjoy some drinks at this new local venue. There will be live music on site Friday night, and A Poker Run video viewing is planned in Lighthouse Grill’s Cocktail Lounge from 10PM to 12AM. It sounds like a fun night to do something different in Marathon and a good chance to mingle with the Poker Run organizers, participants, and enthusiasts.
