Frequently Asked Questions:
* What is the Diner Night & Poker Run?
This event was created as a family event for our community. It is open to all families regardless of having a classic car. We have some wonderful diners in our community. We want to encourage everyone to get back to the days where families went to their local diners and had a meal with their family. By combining this with a poker run we give these families the opportunity to see some of our classic cars in action. It is essentially an opportunity for us to cruise our classic cars around town and get some great food along the way.
* Do I have to have a classic car to participate?
No, the poker run is open to everyone! We encourage families to come out to our local diners and have a meal. Join the poker run and run alongside some of the most beautiful classic cars in the northwest.
* Where do I sign up?
You can purchase a Poker Run Card at any poker run location on the day of the event starting at 6:00 pm. This allows you to start from any location you choose. Poker Run Cards cost $5 each.
* Is there a limit to how many cards we can play?
One card per person is allowed. (example: if you have four people in your car you can get up to four cards per run!) You can play more than once by purchasing additional cards after you finish your first run.
* Where do we meet after the Poker Run Ends?
At 7 pm 50s music will start at the Towne Center Plaza Main Stage location. There will be a limited amount of Classic Car parking in that lot.
