Father’s Day Fishing Derby is Sunday in Avon

Daily staff report
Vail, CO Colorado

AVON, Colorado – The town of Avon is hosting the Burger King Father’s Day Fishing Derby Sunday, from 10 a.m.-noon at Nottingham Park. The Colorado Division of Wildlife stocks the lake with hungry fish each summer to gear up for the event.

Along with fishing, families can enjoy the Gummy Worm Guessing Contest and the petting zoo with goats, bunnies, lambs and other critters. Prizes for contests including catching the biggest fish or most accurately casting a fly include new fishing poles, tackle boxes, Burger King gift certificates and lots of tackle. After the event, the town will serve lunch.

Plan ahead for the event, because the Colorado Division of Wildlife give away fishing poles to those 15 and younger – to get yours, pick up a voucher at the Avon Recreation Center or Avon Library until June 18. Take your voucher to Burger King in Avon and exchange it for a token, which can be redeemed for a new pole at the fishing derby. Burger King is also providing a 20 percent discount on food to anyone who brings in a voucher.
