Come kick off your Fourth of July weekend by joining the Parks and Recreation Department at Freeman Lake Park for our Free Kid’s Fishing Derby!
July 3, 2021
Freeman Lake Park (area between the park office and Lions Shelter)
Families wanting to attend can register their children at the link listed below. The event is FREE but if you pre-register your child, their name will go into our raffle for free games and outdoor play equipment. Raffle drawings will be done every 30 minutes or until all prizes are gone at the Parks and Recreation tent. ONLY pre-registered individuals will be put into the raffle.
Poles and other fishing gear will NOT be provided. Participants will be expected to have their own.
We encourage children to only fish during the event. They do not need a license or permit during the event. If an adult is there to help them or wants to fish with them they will need appropriate KY State Fishing License and a Freeman Lake Fishing Permit.
KY Fish and Wildlife will be set up with a truck and boat, as well as a couple of officers. The public will be able to come ask questions and walk around on their patrol vessels. In addition, there will be food trucks, balloon animals and more!
Additional questions please feel free to contact the Parks Dept. 270-765-5551
