On Saturday, Oct. 7, following the annual Poker Run, the first-ever Poker Run Festival will be held. The event will be at the Tallahassee Memorial Cancer Center, where the Poker Run will end, starting at 10 a.m.

At the festival, there will be local businesses with booths, live music, food trucks and tours of the facility.

“There will be a Carribean food truck, Kona Ice, and the new Tally Mac Shack (food truck),” said sophomore Everett Reed, who is a member of the Student Government Association’s Community Service Committee.

The Good Little Chickens, a popular band comprised of Leon students, will be performing, along with singer Isabel Thompson, who attends Maclay School.

“We’re expecting to make our biggest revenue from the Poker Run/Festival because we have gotten so many generous donations from the Tallahassee community,” Reed said.

There will also be a silent auction held with many fun prizes.

The festival is a community-wide event, and Reed said Leon students are encouraged to bring friends and family for a great cause. The festival is scheduled to end at 1 p.m.
