 SUCCESS, SUCCESS, SUCCESS!

The Huck Finn Fishin’ Derby provides an opportunity for children to enjoy the outdoor experience of fishing.  This is the only time during the year that the lagoon is stocked with fish.  Some children come to the park to fish all year long, but for others, this is the first, or only fishing experience they will ever have.  It's also an opportunity for parents and their children to spend time together as a family sharing the fun of fishing.  The Huck Finn Fishin’ Derby is a guaranteed success!
