The Bella Vista Village Property Owners Association is hosting a family-friendly event at Lake Avalon Park on Saturday, June 13th from 7:30am to 3:30pm. "Fish Fest" will be another event in the Association's year-long celebration of its 50th anniversary. POA membership is not required for the event. The event will be held on Arkansas' Free Fishing Weekend, so no fishing license is required.
The day's activities will kick off with a free Kid's Fishing Derby, for ages 15 and under, which will take place from 8:00am to 11:30am, registration begins at 7:30am. Prizes will be given from noon to 12:30pm. A parent or legal guardian must sign-in all participants.
Fish Fest is sponsored by the Bella Vista Fly Tyers and the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission. Children will have the option of having the fish they catch cleaned to take home. Those who wish to fish should bring their own bait and tackle. Those planning on keeping their day's catch should bring a stringer or basket.
Adults may fish from the shoreline after 12:30pm, once the Kid's Fishing Derby and awards ceremony are complete. Fish Fest will also showcase live entertainment, food trucks, demonstrations, competitions, and kid's activities.
The Lake Avalon Park and boat ramp will be closed on Friday, June 12th in preparations for the festivities. The park will reopen on Saturday; however, the ramp will remain closed until 4:00pm on Saturday June 13th.
