Come see the State Fair Fishing Pond at this year's Indiana State Fair!
This 312,000 gallon, 8,340 sq. ft. State Fair Fishing Pond is a sight to see. Programs are held daily and it is a great opportunity for youth to learn about fish and fishing. Following a brief talk, the newly-educated youth get to cast a line and catch a fish (and then release). Hundreds of volunteers make this event possible each year and Indiana Lakes Management Society has pledged to provide some of these volunteers on Sunday, August 12th, 9:30-1:30 p.m. Volunteers will help kids register, work with families around the pond, prepare equipment, or help with a craft.
Please contact Kyle Turner at email@example.com to sign up and help kids get excited about fishing! Volunteers receive free admission to the fair and a free Fishing Pond t-shirt. Visit the DNR State Fair Fishing Pond website http://www.in.gov/dnr/5495.htm for more information.
