The camping will be “interesting”, definitely not KOA, but you’ll be surrounded by like-minded folks in one of the most beautiful places on this green earth. The Poker Run will show you just how beautiful it is, with a circuit run to the slopes of majestic Mt. Adams and then following the incomparable beauty along the banks of the Klickitat River, then wending your way back along the magnificent Columbia River Gorge. This may sound overblown but you’ll soon find that the superlatives don’t come close to doing justice to the area.
The pig roast / salmon feed began only last year but it is already legendary. The 200 lb. dressed pig is slow smoked by the team of Riley Family experts while the salmon is prepared by Al Mitchell, a salmon and steelhead chef of storied talent. A big serving of your choice of protein with sides of coleslaw and beans is only $10, and there will be beer, sodas, and water (ugh!) to go with it.
Finally on Saturday we get to the evenings entertainment, kicked off with some fine rockabilly warming you up for the wildly popular Johnny Limbo and the Lugnuts with their unique style of rockin’ and R&B. And you say you want more? How about our fabulous fire dancers, down front after the sky darkens a bit.
The Sunday starts right and tight with a pancake breakfast by the White Salmon Volunteer Fire Department. Then it’s back to the park for the car show judging and awards presentations where we find out who truly “brung-it”. The festivities are scheduled to wrap shortly after 1:00pm, giving everyone a chance to enjoy the splendor of the Gorge once more as they head back home.
