Get some kids together; add live animals into the mix; and an infectious wonder will spread to all present.

Last Saturday was the annual Fishing Festival, an event geared toward kids that welcomed all. Held at the Patterson Park Boat Lake, the festival was produced by Baltimore City

Recreation and Parks in partnership with the Friends of Patterson Park and Patterson Park Audubon.

In addition to fishing, the event featured balloon animals, “fishing lessons” for the very young and other games.

To a child, there’s not much that’s more exciting than feeling that primal tug as a fish takes the bait.
