Tyrone, Pennsylvania (WTAJ) – Families lined up by the pond at Reservoir Park on Saturday morning for the annual Tyrone Fish Rodeo.
Children ages 2 to 15 can compete in age groups for prizes such as the biggest fish. This year, we were able to give out rods and reels as prizes as a thank you to our sponsors.
The event is held annually by the Tyrone Area Community Organization, and event chairman Aaron Wright says it’s been going on for as long as he can remember.
“Usually what we really do is have an online auction every May and fund all the events that we do that year,” says Wright. “Fish Rodeo, Easter Egg Hunt, Halloween Parade, Punt, Pass and Kick Contest. All money raised will be donated directly to these four events.”
Wright said the event wouldn’t be possible without local sponsors.
