The Fishing Derby is looking for a business to sponsor the Fins & Grins photo op station at this year's Derby. The Fins & Grins is an area where kids and adults of all ages can proudly display their catch in front of a banner that has YOUR logo (click on this link to see a photo of what this looks like)! You can also set up a table to give out your marketing materials and business cards and talk to the people that stop by. What a great way to get your business name out to hundreds of people! Contact Erica at the Chamber if you are interested. 425.432.0222 x101 or read more

Time to get ready for the annual "Hooked on Fishing" event at Lake Wilderness. The fun starts on Friday, April 21st through Saturday, April 22nd. This year marks the 15th annual "Hooked On Fishing" Opening Day Trout Derby on Lake Wilderness. This is actually an event that spans generations of opening day enthusiasts. The Maple Valley Lion's Club originally sponsored the derby decades ago until 1994. In 2003 when the City of Maple Valley acquired the park from King County, a partnership was forged by the chamber, Maple Valley Rotary, and The City to bring the traditional opening day celebration back to Lake Wilderness. Where else can you go so close to home to camp out all night, enter a derby, and eat a ham and egg breakfast with all you can eat pancakes at midnight under the stars? read more
