Fullerton, Ca – Registration is now being taken for the Fullerton Parks and Recreation Department's 7th Annual "Kid's Fishing Derby" set for Saturday, April 13, at Laguna Lake Park.

            The fun will begin at 8:30 a.m. with free Learning Stations with the Derby starting at 8:00 a.m. The event is free to children and their families. Children ages 3-15 are allowed to fish.

            Laguna Lake Park is located at 3120 Lakeview Drive, just east of Euclid Street.

            The derby will offer a variety of fun activities for children, including fishing "learning stations" sponsored by the state Department of Fish and Wildlife (DFW). 

            In addition, children will get to test their skills with a rod and reel in casting contests.  The DFW will make fishing gear available for use for the day to children who go through the learning stations.

            Lunch will be available for purchase. 

            While the derby is free, pre-registration is required and may be made by calling the Parks and Recreation Department at (714) 738-6575.  Registration may also be made by coming to the Fullerton Community Center, 340 W. Commonwealth Ave. or online at www.fullertonEconnect.com.

            We are looking for volunteers for the day of the event.  Persons willing to help out are asked to call James Kashiwada at (714) 738-3338.         

            Parents of children requiring special accommodations to participate in the derby are asked to notify Parks and Recreation staff members when pre-registering their children for the event.
