A “fishing rodeo” for kids under 13 (adult companions required) will run from 8 to 11 a.m. at Ethel Waters Park, 291 Edgmont Ave. Cabela’s will give out some rods. Zitner’s will pass out candy. Competitors will bring their five fattest live fish to the Harrah’s casino at the north end of town for weighing and awards at 4 p.m.
“We contacted Cabela’s 18 months ago,” said Drake Nakaishi, the city’s economic-development director. “We wanted to create opportunities to get a positive story out about Chester.”
