UXBRIDGE: Attention all residents of Uxbridge and area, let’s go fishing again! Yes, it’s true. The 16th annual Uxbridge “Huck Finn” Youth Fishing day is just around the corner! The event, sponsored by Canadian Tire, is supported by the Ministry of Natural Resources, Uxbridge Township, the Royal Canadian Legion, the Optimist Club, the Pickering Rod and Gun Club, the OFAH, Zone “G”, the Uxbridge B.I.A., and last but not least, the Durham Region Police.
On Saturday, April 28th, everyone is once again invited out for a great fun-filled day of fishing. Elgin Pond will be the home of 100’s of Brook trout, just waiting to be caught by any participant 15 years of age and under. The kick off for the event will be a Huck Finn parade. Starting at Elgin Park, at 9:15 a.m., all children and parents are encouraged to dress up in your best Huck Finn outfits. Decorate your bikes and wagons too! All parade participants will be entitled to a V.I.P. fishing area after the parade. There are lots of special prizes for those participating in the parade!
We have some fantastic prizes too! Participants have a chance to win a prize and are guaranteed a fun filled day of fishing. Bring your equipment, we’ll provide the bait to all registered participants! To register, pick up your ribbon ahead of time at any of the following locations: Uxpool; Uxbridge Legion; Presents, Presents; Blue Heron Books; and Canadian Tire. You can also get them at the Pond on the day of the event. If you don’t have any gear, the Pickering Rod and Gun Club will be pleased to lend it to anyone 15 and under!
This year’s event promises to be another tremendous success. We encourage the entire community to come out and have a great time with your family! Don’t forget the Huck Finn parade too! Watch for the posters detailing the event. It promises to be a great time!
