The Harbor Hop is a boating event in which participants “Hop” from and to waterfront restaurants and marinas to draw playing cards in order to build a winning poker hand and become eligible to win prizes. Players can donate $15.00 per seven-card hand and start their hop and draw their first card at any of the 30+ sponsoring restaurants and marinas along the Lake’s main channel, the Big Niangua and Gravois arms.
“This event is a great opportunity for visitors and locals to get out on the Lake and take in the beautiful Fall foliage while enjoying a great time with friends,” states Heather Brown, Director of Member Services for the Lake of the Ozarks Convention and Visitor Bureau. “At the Harbor Hop, we can guarantee a good time.
