Our family has attended the Family Fishing Fair at Ramona Park for a number of years and we’ve always loved it. We have so much fun fishing and doing all of the activities offered. Plus, the event is FREE. What a great way to try out fishing and participate in a great community event! Plus, the weather looks perfect for this weekend.
