Dennis Ferguson’s 23rd annual Fishing Rodeo for Kids will be on Aug. 10 at Roane County Park in Midtown.
The annual event is free to ages 5-14.
“I love seeing parents that came to the rodeo when they were children and they are now bringing their children to fish,” Ferguson said.
Registration starts at 8 a.m., and fishing will begin at 9.
The first 300 children will receive a T-shirt, cap, and prizes will be awarded.
Lunch will be provided.
This rodeo is widely recognized as one of the best organized in the Southeastern U.S.
“We are very excited about the 23rd annual fishing rodeo,” Ferguson said. “I also want to thank all of the sponsors, the community, and the volunteers for always being willing to help me put on a great event for Roane County’s children.”
