Kids Derby


Young anglers also get a chance to take part in the fun, learn about fishing, and advance their skills during the 22nd Annual Lantana Fishing Derby. Fishing rods and tackle boxes will be donated to 50 pre-selected underprivileged children. Bait will be provided as well. All kids who participate will be treated to lunch and the top angler will win a new bicycle courtesy of Lantana Fitness.

“Fishing is one of the most popular summertime activities in Lantana,” says David Arm, President of the Greater Lantana Chamber of Commerce. “And for almost 22 years the Lantana Fishing Derby has helped kick-start the season and get kids and their friends and families outdoors and into the fun of it.”

The main entrance to Bicentennial Park is located at 320 E. Ocean Avenue, Lantana, FL 33462. For more information on the Kids Fishing Derby, email or call Lynn Smith, Executive Director of The Greater Lantana Chamber of Commerce, at or (561)585-8664.
