Fish Rodeo Festival offers creative activities in Lansing

LANSING, MI (WLNS) – Creativity and appreciation of Michigan’s aquatic resources are themes of the second annual Grand American Fish Rodeo Festival in Lansing.

The two-day event gets underway Friday at Adado Riverfront Park on the banks of the Grand River in Lansing.

Among the activities will be a fishing tournament, live music, boat rides and canoe and kayak races.

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources will sponsor an education tent with hands-on exhibits and other free attractions. A display about invasive species will feature live sea lamprey, which are eel-like creatures that attach their mouths to other fish and feed off their bodily fluids.

There also will be live sturgeon, a threatened species in Michigan.

We welcome thoughts and comments from our viewers. We ask that everyone keep their remarks civil and respectful. Postings that contain profanity, racist, or potentially libelous remarks will be deleted. We will delete any commercial postings, as well.
