Kids age 3-16 are encouraged to participate in angler education stations to learn the basics of fishing. The first 500 to complete the stations will receive a free fishing rod and reel. Other activities include a fishing tournament split into three age categories, games, crafts, a rock climbing wall and visits with Specialists, Biologists and Game Wardens that help to manage the natural and cultural resources of Purtis Creek State Park. The event begins with registration at 8:00 am. The tournament will begin at 9:00 am and go until noon after which trophies and door prizes will be awarded. Brookshire’s and Dr. Pepper are teaming up to provide free lunches of hot dogs, chips and drinks and no entry fee’s into the park will be collected until 5:00 pm.
