Camp Gordon Johnston WWII Museum’s Dice Run
March 12 @ 12:00 pm - 4:30 pm
Camp Gordon Johnston WWII Museum is excited to announce the return of its Dice Run on Saturday, March 12, 2022, in Carrabelle, FL as part of the 27th 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 coastline US Highway 98 to various checkpoints, rolling dice at each one. At the end of the day, participants with the highest and with the lowest combined rolls win prizes. All types of vehicles are welcome to participate. Registration for the Dice Run will be open from 12:00-1:30 PM at Camp Gordon Johnston Museum, 1873 US Hwy 98, Carrabelle, FL directly across from Carrabelle Beach Public Park. The run will conclude by 4:30 PM at American Legion Post #82 in Lanark. Prizes will be awarded for high and low rollers, door prizes, and 50-50 raffles. The ticket cost for this event is $15.00 for the rider/driver and $5.00 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 12 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.
