For the 26th straight year, retired Evansville Courier-Press columnist Steve Ford will host his annual July 4th Fishing Derby for Kids at Garvin Park on Evansville's north side. Steve stopped by the show Thursday to talk about this year's event, and how you and your kids can be a part of it.

The event is free to attend with registration beginning at 8:30 a.m. on the east end of Garvin Lake and the derby running from 9:00 a.m. until 11:00. Prizes will be awarded by the total length of fish caught during the two hour period, and everyone who participates will walk away with some sort of souvenir.

Learn more about the history of this event in our interview with Steve below.
