Boyne Thunder Roars into Northern Michigan July 12-13


Mark your calendars for July 12-13 for the 16th annual Boyne Thunder Poker Run in Boyne City, Michigan.

The poker run showcases 120 high-performance boats from across the country, roaring through the waters of Lake Charlevoix and Lake Michigan on a 130-mile excursion in search of the best poker hand. Card stops include Northport, Elk Rapids, Harbor Springs and Bay Harbor, with a lunch stop in downtown Charlevoix. The day concludes with a dinner and an auction at Veterans Park, where participants play their cards to see who has the best hand.

In addition to the Poker Run, the weekend offers other activities in Boyne City, including a Friday night dinner for the boaters in Veterans Park and Stroll the Streets in downtown Boyne City, featuring music, entertainment and displays of powerboats and classic cars.
