From Saturday, September 28, 9:00 am until 12:00 pm

Illinois 1st District State Senator Antonio "Tony" Muñoz and McKinley Park resident Steve Demitro present the third annual Fishing Derby from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, September 28, 2019, at the McKinley Park lagoon, 2210 W. Pershing Road, Chicago. Open to children ages 7 to 13, the derby will offer prizes for catching fish, which the Illinois Department of Natural Resources will stock heavily in the lagoon shortly before the derby.

There is no cost to participate in the derby, but parents should register their children in advance by calling (773) 869-9050. Participants are encouraged to bring their own fishing poles, tackle and bait; a limited number will be available to use on a first-come, first-served basis.
