The Village of Wellington hosted its 29th annual Children’s Holiday Fishing Classic on Saturday, Dec. 14 at Village Park on Pierson Road.

The weather was beautiful, and more than 80 kids participated, broken down into four age groups with plenty of awards given away.

While it is Wellington’s 29th year of hosting the event, this was the second year that Building Up Sports Academy helped organize and run it.

“We partnered up with Wellington last time, and this is a great chance for other communities to get together,” Building Up Sports Academy’s David Aagaard explained.
