2023 Cruisin' Nocona!
Friday, May 5th
Get out and enjoy the fresh air during our Cruisin’ Nocona Poker Cruise. This 120-mile journey takes you through the picturesque North Texas Hill Country, enjoying several stops along the way including looping back to Nocona to enjoy lunch.
Lunch will be served by The Burrito Shop and includes a BBQ sandwich, chips, and bottled water. Dessert will be provided by 217 Coffee with the choice of a Chocolate Vodka Cake or Red Velvet Cake slices. Additional lunch tickets may be purchased for $20.00 each.
This year we’ve added a historic stop at Spanish Fort. Bob Ferguson, owner of the Red River Station Inn in Nocona, Texas, will provide historical insight into the Red River Station area plus facts on the Taovayas Indian Tribe, as featured on Red Steagall’s show “West of Wall Street.”
Early-Bird Registration is $50. You can register at the Nocona Chamber of Commerce, 304 Clay Street, #3 or go online at Nocona.org/events/ and download the form. After April 25, the cost is $65. On-site registration the day of the event at the Justin Building, 100 Clay Street, Nocona, Texas. The cost includes a Cruisin’ Nocona T-shirt, Goody Bag, and ticket for your cruise lunch.
Prizes will be awarded to the best poker hands - 1st, 2nd, and 3rd.
End the day with an old-fashion burnout sponsored by the Nocona Gas Junkies. Cars come from near and far to show off how they can burn rubber for 20 seconds! There will be 1st, 2nd, and 3rd prizes awarded.
