18th Annual Hackensack Children's Fishing Contest to continue in 2014


The Hackensack Children’s Fishing Contest is preparing for its 18th annual season.

There have been rumors that the contest would not continue after the death of founder Robert Kennedy in 2013. However, organizers will continue to hold this contest every year.

The only change is the contest will stop at 12:30 p.m. instead of 1 p.m. All prizes will be awarded starting at 12:30 p.m., so the event should wrap up around 1 p.m. each Tuesday.
