Starting on Friday, July 11th at 6:30p.m. come down to St. Mary’s River Drive Parade of Boats to check out the boats from all over Northern Ontario and Michigan and meet the anglers who will be competing in the Tournament. Have your picture taken and maybe even learn a few secrets!

On Saturday and Sunday there will be Free Family Fun at the Roberta Bondar Pavilion and Marina starting at noon including; a Fishing Simulator (you’re guaranteed to hook a big one) , Face Painting, the Steel Workers Fun Carnival, Kids’ Fishing Seminars and so much more offered by our sponsors and vendors. Our volunteers will also be BBQing up some tasty treats, so you won’t have to leave hungry!

The ever impressive “Live-in-Water Weigh-Ins” will start on Saturday at 4:00p.m. and Sunday at 3:00p.m. with all of the big prizes being awarded Sunday just after the final Weigh-In. Don’t miss your chance to see that the St. Mary’s River has some monster walleyes!
