Burk Kids Fish for Prizes

Over 30 families turned out for the Boomtown Fishing Derby Saturday.

Children 12 and under tested their angling skills hoping to land one of two prizes for the biggest fish caught.

Organizers say the competition is pretty stiff.

"It gets pretty intense," said Burkburnett Parks and Recreation Director Rodney Roberts. "But everyone is out here to have a good time. That's what we promote, is a good time and family fun out here at the Friendship Park."

The event was only $2 per child and ran from 9 a.m. until noon.
