Fishing Derby Mural

Darn! We mssed the kids' fishing derby in Uxbridge this year. The sixth annual Huck Finn Day was held on the last Saturday in April. BUT we didn't miss the mural!
Apparently the local pond was stocked with plenty of trout and prizes were awarded to every participant, each of whom was encouraged to dress up like Huck Finn. But the grandest prize was a kayak, awarded to the young angler who caught the largest tagged trout.

I wish I could pass for a kid! Huck Finn Day sounds like so-o-o much fun!

Great mural. I am sorry the kids missed the derby. Why one of them could be coming home with a kayak. Yeah, I know what ya mean--it would be nice to be a kid again. MB
