Our Annual Family Fishing Rodeo takes place on Labor Day weekend each year. At our Fishing Rodeo, you and your children can compete in numerous fresh and salt water fishing categories to win prizes. The Open Division offers 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place monetary prizes while the Junior Division offers trophies and a kayak for the grand prize winner! Watch your children's faces light up as they proudly weigh their catch and watch for their names on the leader board!

You'll also have a chance to enter raffles and bid on silent auction items as well as check out our t-shirts. A fried fish dinner will be offered at the end of the day on Sunday. Join us for this family-friendly, fundraising event.

We are extremely grateful for the support of all of our sponsors. With their help, Backpack Project USA continues to fulfill our mission of providing weekend food for disadvantaged children in Escambia County's elementary schools and allowing these children to focus on their studies thereby creating a solid foundation for their futures while alleviating stress in our community.
