About the Derby

 

This is one of Lantana’s biggest events benefiting a number of local charities and organizations. A signature event during Derby Weekend is our annual Kids’ Derby. We donate fishing rods and tackle boxes to 50 underprivileged children, teach them to bait and cast, and hold a fishing contest at the New Lantana Bridge Pier. We treat them to lunch, and the winning angler receives a new bicycle.
