The annual Fountain Fishing Derby and International Day festival return to Wenatchee Valley College on Thursday, May 19, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. near the fountain on the Wenatchee campus. Both events are open to the public.

The International Day celebration includes musical performances, Okinawa dancers, tacos, mariachi music, karaoke and origami. Musical performances start at 11 a.m.

The fishing derby includes hundreds of triploid rainbow trout, with a few five-pound “lunkers” for some extra fun. WVC student leaders will be available to clean and gut fish on location.

The cost for the fishing derby is $3 for a rod and the first fish, $1 for each additional fish, with a limit of three fish per angler. WVC students and their families fish for free.

Food will be available for purchase.
