We will provide a FREE shuttle service from upper city centre to heritage park starting at 2:30 pm. This is another opportunity to win a prize - that's right you can win a prize for riding the FREE shuttle bus!
FishFest will again offer music, beverages and food vendors. Fun and games for all ages.
NEW THIS YEAR to the Fish Derby - only Coho for this year's derby - so all fish will be weighed in at the Chamber of Commerce. Another BIG change this year: You do not have to be present to win the grand prizes!
