In conjunction with the Ladysmith Downtown Business Association, the Show & Shine Poker Walk happens each year. This is only for participants who have a car in the Show & Shine – men and women – to browse the local shops, gather your best hand of poker then win prizes based on best hand!
- Participants are given a list of participating stores and the addresses for each.
- A map is provided to give participants an idea of where each merchant is.
- Each entrant gets a white envelope and ten tickets to take to the stores.
- Trade the ticket for a playing card.
- It is hoped, that while in the business, participants will look around and see the groovy stores that we have in our community.
- Once a participant has collected their playing cards (maximum of 10), they bring the cards and the envelope back to the Show and Shine registration desk.
- They give us their top five cards/poker hand in the envelope with their car number on it.
- Our committee judges the hands and pick the top three. The three are then awarded the prizes from the Ladysmith Downtown Business Association just before we hand out the Show & Shine trophies.
