The large pond at Heritage Park, located behind the Canton Administration Building at 1150 South Canton Center Road, will be stocked with bluegill and trout from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. for residents of all ages to catch.
“Now that spring has arrived, the Family Fishing Derby is a chance to enjoy quality leisure time outdoors and make memories with families, friends and neighbors,” said Recreation Specialist Jennifer Girard. “Don’t miss out on one of Canton’s popular family traditions!”
No fishing license or advance registration is required for this event. Participants can register onsite on the day of the event for $5 per participant/fishing ribbon for Canton residents who provide proof of residency. Anglers of all ages must provide their own fishing equipment. A limited quantity of bait will also be available for purchase.
The event will take place rain or shine, and in addition to fishing will feature a kids craft and face painting by D&M Art Studio. The Mean Weenie food truck will also be onsite with lunches available for purchase.
