Grayslake Community Park District: George Weinert Fishing Derby

June 5 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am

Get hooked and have some fun at this free family event! Seven years ago, the Grayslake Park District hosted the first Fishing Derby to honor former Park Board Commissioner and avid fisherman George Weinert. Every year since, we’ve hosted the Fishing Derby to honor George’s memory and commitment to the Grayslake community.

Receive a free shirt and expedite check-in at the event when you register in advance! Registration is free and can be done online through the Grayslake Park District (http://bit.ly/3v9zbxb) through May 29. If you don’t register in advance you’re still welcome to attend – but we can’t guarantee you’ll receive a shirt. All ages are welcome. Anyone 16 years and older will need a fishing license. Please bring your own rod, reel, cast line, and bait. Social distancing is expected – keep at least one fishing pole length between yourself and others!

Thanks to generous event sponsors: The Jim Starwalt Team, Orthodontic Specialists of Lake County and the Weinert Family.
