ICE FISHING C0NTEST

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 10, 2018

1:00 – 3:00 PM

FIREMEN’S PARK and LAKE

Fishing WILL BE held on the lake at Firemen’s Park.

Prizes, games, raffle tickets, food and beverages, will be held inside the adjoining Event Center. 

The Chaska Fire Department has served the community for over 145 years, making it one of the oldest fire departments in the state.  To put that in perspective, some of the neighboring departments were founded in the 1960s.  The Chaska Fire Department has a rich history of nearly a century and a half of operation.  It still closely resembles the organization that was founded in 1871.  It is almost entirely a volunteer organization which relies on the generosity of resident donations to help supplement activities that are not funded through the City budget. The Fishing Contest is their one and only fundraiser.

The firefighters are excited to be utilizing the Chaska Event Center as the headquarters for the contest.  This will be a great community gathering event where residents can also tour the fabulous Chaska Curling Center.  The Crooked Pint Restaurant will be partnering with the Fire Department for food and beverages during the event.
