Fun for the Whole Family

The Let's Go Fishing Show is a family friendly event with activities for all ages to enjoy. There will be kid's games, face painting, interactive displays, live demos, wild birds, and much more! 

IL Department of Natural Resources will be providing a Free Fishing Pond. It's large enough for multiple anglers and fun for all!
