Fishing Derby activities consist of a fishing derby followed by a picnic lunch. Pre-registration cost is $5 per child. Cost includes bait and a picnic lunch - be sure to bring chairs or a blanket! Anyone who is not fishing but would like to purchase a picnic lunch can do so by buying a ticket for $3 the day of the event.

Children up to the age of 15 may participate in the Fishing Derby. All participants will need to bring their own fishing pole (one fishing pole per registered participant) and must be accompanied by an adult.
