Between the hot cars and the hot boats, the street party at the 11th annual Boyne Thunder Poker Run in Boyne City, Mich., is buzzing. Although still a bit early for the big crowds, below is a handful of images that I downloaded during a quick refuel stop at the recommended burger joint Thick N’ Juicy on the corner of Lake Street and Water Street—the focal point of Friday evening’s festivities.

Stay tuned for more coverage on speedonthewater.com from tomorrow’s poker run. And check out a couple of our YouTube videos from the street party as well as the related story from Thursday’s fun run.
