Fish with dad in Avon Sunday

Vail Daily staff report
Vail, CO Colorado

AVON – Celebrate Father’s Day by spending quality time with your child. Avon is hosting the Father’s Day Fishing Derby from 10 a.m. to noon on Sunday at Harry A. Nottingham Park. The Colorado Division of Wildlife stocks the lake with fish each summer to gear up for this family-friendly event.

Along with fishing, families can enjoy the Gummy Worm Guessing Contest and a visit with Tigger. Take a try at catching the biggest fish or the most fish to win prizes such as new fishing poles, tackle boxes, Burger King gift certificates and tons of tackle. Lunch will be provided by the Town of Avon.

A new fishing pier located on the north side of Nottingham Lake will open. The pier was partially funded by a grant from the Colorado Division of Wildlife’s Fishing is Fun program.

This event is for children 15 years of age and under. Pets are not allowed.
