Classic car, motorcyclists, and drag racing enthusiasts, this event’s for you! The Idaho Falls Rotary Club is kicking the Duck Race off by hosting pre-race activities the evening before the Duck Race.

Bring your classic or custom car, truck, or motorcycle to the entrance of the city’s newest park - Heritage Park, located along the riverbank on the south side of Snake River Landing. Access to Heritage Park is off of Snake River Parkway. Cruise through downtown as a group and collect poker cards. (More information about the Poker Run will be provided upon arrival.)

The Cruise and Poker Run will end at Idaho Falls Cars and Trucks located at 880 W. Broadway for dinner and awards at approximately 6:30 p.m. Cruisers, as well as the general public are invited to join the Idaho Falls Rotary Club for free hamburgers provided by Sam’s Club and live music provided by a local favorite – the 40 Somethin’ Band, sponsored by Wheeler Electric.

New this year is a Ford vs. Ferrari exhibition and Steve Cook Racing Dragster Demonstration on Denver Street near Idaho Falls Cars and Trucks. For questions about the Cruise and Poker Run, contact Evan at (208) 557-8799 or Bill at (208) 221-3231.
