LakeFest 2010

On Saturday, June 12, the City of Eagan held its "LakeFest 2010" at Blackhawk Park. In honor of "Take a Kid Fishing Day," residents could fish with their children ages 16 and younger without a license; bait and equipment were provided. A water resources specialist displayed a huge tank filled with many of the local fish species.

  1. Oh, how I wish I had known this was taking place. I would have loved to have taken my granddaughter there.

  5. Sounds fun, except the fishing part!

    The only thing more boring than fishing is watching someone else fish. ;)
