Camp Gordon Johnston WWII Museum’s Dice Run
March 11 @ 10:30 am - 5:00 pm
Camp Gordon Johnston WWII Museum announces the return of its Dice Run on Saturday, March 11, 2023 in Carrabelle, FL as part of the 28th Annual Camp Gordon Johnston Day events. The Camp Gordon Johnston Dice Run will take place immediately following the CGJ Veterans Parade and is a much-needed fundraiser to support the museum’s mission. The funds raised by this event are used to preserve the heritage of the men and women who trained at Camp Gordon Johnston, to share the stories of those who served in WWII, as well as honor all our military veterans.
During this fun event, participants will drive along beautiful coastal US Highway 98 to various fun stops, rolling dice at each one. At the end of the day, those with the highest and the lowest combined dice rolls will win prizes. All types of vehicles are welcome to participate. Registration for the Dice Run will be open from 12-1:30 PM at the first Dice Run Stop, Camp Gordon Johnston Museum, 1873 US Hwy 98 West, at Carrabelle Beach, FL. There will be four more stops around the county and then the run will conclude by 4:30 PM at the last stop, American Legion Post #82 in Lanark with a meal, winner prizes, door prizes, and 50/50. Ticket cost for this event is $15 for the rider/driver and $5 for each passenger and includes one dice card and great food at the last stop.
Guests are urged to come to Carrabelle before the Dice Run to enjoy the Veterans Parade either as a participant or a spectator. The parade, which honors and recognizes military veterans and active duty military, will start Saturday, March 11 at 10:45 AM along US Hwy 98 in downtown Carrabelle. Visitors are also welcome to visit the museum to learn amazing stories of the region’s WWII heroes and see the remarkable artifacts. The museum will be open on Saturday from 11 AM to 5 PM. While in Carrabelle, participants are encouraged to stay for the weekend (or the week) and enjoy a variety of community activities, attractions, and restaurants.
