Over 1,000 youth ages 5 to 15 will be angling for a prize catch at the 2005 Knabe Katch Fishing Derby at La Mirada Regional Park this Saturday, September 24. This year’s event hosted by Los Angeles County Supervisor Don Knabe and the La Mirada Kiwanis Club along with the City of La Mirada and the County Department of Parks and Recreation promises to be a fun-filled day for the entire family.
The fishing derbies are always fun events that children and families look forward to and many return to participate each year, said Knabe. Even if a child has never fished before, there are volunteers on-hand to show them the art of casting a line and the fun of putting a worm on a hook.
The event will begin at 7:00 a.m. with a free pancake breakfast, followed by the derby kickoff at 8:00 a.m. Children may take part in free fishing and angler safety lessons as well as other activities. Each child will also receive a free t-shirt and be eligible for prizes in several categories.
La Mirada Regional Park is located at 13701 South Adelfa Avenue, La Mirada, California. For more information, call (626) 333-1369.
