Join us July 24, 2018, at Voinovich Park in North Coast Harbor for  the North Coast Harbor and Cleveland Police Foundation Kids Fish Free Day!

Kids 16 & under grab your fishing gear & head to the pier for our  Annual Kids Fish CLE for FREE event- limited poles & bait will be available from 11:00AM to 3:00PM Tuesday, July 24th.  First 100 kids receive a new Shakespeare combo rod!

To make your day enjoyable Downtown Cleveland Alliance, Prime Time Junior Bass Anglers and the North Coast Bass Anglers Association  volunteers will be on site to assist. We have 2 fishing zones this season:  Voinovich Park and the North end of E9th Street Pier. 

Outdoor activities include: DCA City Advocates Pop-Up Playground, bocce ball, volleyball, giant checkers & jenga. Kids can also have fun leaving their (temporary) mark at North Coast Harbor in our designated chalkART zone. The infamous DR. U R Awesome will mesmerize the kiddos with bubblepalooza. New to this year, Cops vs. kids Bubble Soccer games from 1pm-3pm. 

The Cleveland Police Foundation will be serving up free hot dog lunch (while supplies last). For the non-hotdog lovers Swenson’s Food Truck will be on site serving galley boys (cash & credit card accepted).
