This Saturday, from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m., we’re in for a real treat — the Rim Country Optimist Club will be hosting its annual Kids Fishing Festival at Payson’s Green Valley Park’s three lakes. Optimist Club member Joan Young told me, “The festival is open to kids of all ages, from 2 to 102. There will be prizes for the largest fish caught, a 40-item silent auction, cakewalk, balloon sculpturing, raffle prizes (to include boys’ bikes), face painting, music and food. We usually have between 300 and 500 participants and are hoping for more this year. And we’ll be giving away ball caps to the first 300 kids who register on Saturday.”
