Kids Fishing Derby

Lake Alvin Fishing Dock

Kids Fishing Derby Event Information

Most of us have really great memories growing up and going fishing with our family and friends. Just getting outside and hanging around the lake or river for whatever reason was the best. At times we might not have caught anything, sometimes we got our own personal record catch and then other times, we “forgot” our poles and just found ourselves on a dock or beach just having fun as a family.

Let’s continue making those memories with a whole new generation of kids by bringing your kids out to the Free Harrisburg Days Youth Fishing Derby. We’re sure there will be a lot of fun and laughs for kids of all ages. No preregistration required.
