Frankfort’s 14th Annual Take A Kid Fishing!

The 14th Annual Take-A-Kid Fishing will be held June 23rd and 24th at Mineral Springs Park in Downtown Frankfort. The fun begins with a Nite-crawler Hunt on June 23rd. The Kids gather at Mineral Springs Park at dusk with their flashlights, rain gear (just in case) and buckets to gather their WORMS! Gotta have worms to go Fishin’.

Then, June 24th, bright and early, starting at 8 a.m., bring the whole family to enjoy a day of FISHING! The kids will receive free t-shirts and free pizza (compliments of Frankfort A Papano’s Pizza), drinks & sweet treats compliments of Family Fare and Frankfort-Elberta Chamber of Commerce

There will be no entry fees and no licenses required for kids! No kid is turned away, but every kid needs to accompanied by a parent or adult. Last year we had more than 100 kids show up for these fun events.

If you’re interested in helping in any way or need more information, please call Donna Phillips at 231-352-7251 or email If you have any used fishing equipment appropriate for kids you’d like to donate, you can drop it off at the Frankfort-Elberta Area Chamber of Commerce 517 Main Street. The Chamber and their many volunteers hope that the “Kids” and their families enjoy this annual event.
