The Zanesville Jaycees are helping local residents have some fun this Memorial Day weekend.

While Zane’s Landing Park may look empty now, Saturday, it’ll be crowded with activity. For the third year the Jaycees will host their Memorial Weekend Poker Run.

"The poker run consists of a motorcycle ride. Registration starts at 11 and goes until 1," said Zanesville Jaycees Dave Mortimer. "We expect all bikes in around 5 and we’ll serve food from Bill’s Real Pit BBQ and we’ll have beverages and there’ll be a band."

The band performing is Chllin Sun, who’s lead singer wrote the hit song "We all Die Young" for the movie Rockstar and has written songs for Slaughter. They’ll take the stage at 6p.m. Saturday.

"The band from Buffalo, NY is really good and we’re glad to have them come to Zanesville," said Mortimer. "It’s the first time they’ve been here. That event is welcomed to the public at no charge."

Money raised from Saturday’s event goes towards the Jaycees Scholarship fund and other activities.
