For kids who love to fish, the Department of Parks and Recreation will hold a children’s fishing derby from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. Saturday, May 5, at Apollo Community Regional Park at 4555 West Avenue G, Lancaster.
This fishing derby is free-of-charge, and prizes will be given out to both boys and girls of various age groups. Prizes include bikes, tents and fishing gear.
This event is something that the local community looks forward to every year, and it has been happening every summer since the park opened in the 1970s. The opportunity to show kids the fun of fishing is something that park staff looks forward to, and this is the most anticipated event at Apollo Community Regional Park every year.
We hope to see you out at the lake this Saturday. If you have any questions, or need more information, please contact the park directly at (661) 940-7701.
