With changes in regulations for group gatherings the Flin Flon Trout Festival is going ahead with the July 1st parade. Vice-President Sheena Reed says it will be their usual parade route under the theme celebrating our essential workers and graduates with spectators physical distancing. She explains under the new regulations no crowds outside of more than 50 so they’re going to make sure people are spread out. She says there’s no cost to enter, there’ll be the usual prizes for commercial and non-commercial and they’re hoping to get a good turnout of cars, trucks, trailers, motorcycles, quads, golf carts, anything you want to enter.
An entry form will soon be available on their website www.flinflontroutfestival.com. Reed adds they are also planning a walleye fishing derby so people can fish from shore if they wish running from June 12th to 28th with entry forms at the Gateway, Gas Bar, Rubi’s Outdoors and Lloydy’s with complete details on the Festival website.
