Each year the ponds behind the baseball field play host to the Huck Finn Fishing Contest. In 2002, in cooperation with the Civic Club, Kiwanis of Sierra Madre, and the Sierra Madre Volunteer Firefighters' Association, the Parks and Recreation Dept. sponsored the derby for children ages 3 to 15. The event took place on Saturday, Mar. 29, 2003.  Thanks to Paul Magaris and Rita Pierce for providing these great photos.  Click on a thumbnail to view the enlarged version of the picture.
