DEARBORN – The tradition continues, even in this digital age.
The 23rd annual Children’s Fishing Derby, sponsored by the Recreation & Parks Department and Eppinger Manufacturing Co., will begin at 8 a.m. July 13 at Camp Dearborn.
The event will feature competition in five age groups — 3 to 5, 6 to 8, 9 to 11, 12 to 15 and 16 to 18 — and prizes will be awarded for the biggest fish and the most fish in each age group.
Participation in the event — which will take place on Eppinger Lake — is free with a paid gate admission to Camp Dearborn, and the first 100 children registering on site will receive a free T-shirt.
Participants should bring their own rod, bucket and bait.
