The Town of Riverhead Recreation Department will host its 15th Annual Snapper Tournament on Saturday, September 7, on the Peconic Riverfront.
Each year, the tournament is organized to get young people and adults involved in fishing — and to raise money for the Riverhead recreation department's scholarship fund.
The tournament features an adult division, for ages 16 and up, and a youth division, for kids under 16. A rod and reel will be awarded to the first place winner in each division.
Trophies will be awarded to the top three finishers in each division. Free T-shirts will be given to the first 100 registrants.
Pre-registration is available by calling 621-727-5744 ext. 0, or in person at the recreation department, located at 55 Columbus Avenue in Riverhead.
On-site registration will begin at 10 a.m. on the Peconic Riverfront.
The tournament runs from 11 a.m. until 3 pm. A Chinese auction for prizes donated by local businesses will begin at 3:15 pm.
Anglers must supply their own poles and bait.
A rain date has been scheduled for Sunday, September 8.
