Kids and fishing! What's more Minnesotan than that? If your kids like fishing, the Saint Peter Fire Department invites them to join the fun at the annual Youth Ice Fishing Contest - Saturday, January 29th between 1-2:30 p.m. at Hallett's Pond. The event is free for ages 15 and under.
Kids should bring their own pole, but if you don't have one, the Fire Department will have one available for them. Bait will be provided.
Hot dogs and hot chocolate will also be available and there will be prizes (1st, 2nd and 3rd) for the largest fish with other prizes also available.
Hats off to the local sponsors of this event...Nielsen Blacktopping and Concrete, St. Peter Lawn and Sport, AmericInn by Wyndham, Hometown Bank, Arrow Hardware & Paint, Red Men Club, Scheels, Pioneer Bank, Family Fresh Market, Sign Pro of Mankato, Nelson Printing Company, and Nutter Clothing Company.
If the contest is canceled, they will look into another date to hold the event.
