THE AVOCA ICE FISHEREE IS HELD EACH YEAR ON THE SECOND SUNDAY IN FEBRUARY
Fishermen take to the ice every second Sunday in February for the annual Ice Fisheree. Hundreds more enjoyed the festivities at the Community Building downtown.
The annual event is sponsored by the Avoca Fire Department as a fundraiser.
The Fisheree is an event that is not only for fishermen. There are many other things to keep the crowd happy including a huge euchre tournament, bake sale, meat paddles and lunch served by the Avoca EMS.
A huge crowd gathers at the Avoca Community Building for the festivities. With over 1,000 door prizes, people have a good chance of going home with something, even if they don't go fishing. A boat, motor and trailer is the grand prize each year.
See you on the ice in February!
