If a catfish rodeo or skeet shoot sounds like your child’s idea of a good time, be prepared to hop in the car and head over to JAKES Day at Chicopee Woods Agricultural Center this weekend.

The free event will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, May 26, at the center, which is located at 1855 Calvary Church Road in Gainesville.

JAKES — Juniors Acquiring Knowledge Ethics and Sportsmanship — Day is sponsored by the Foothills Chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation and Hall County Parks and Leisure Services. Their goal is to give kids a fun opportunity to get back into nature.

This is the 12th year for JAKES Day, which will include a variety of activities such as archery, turkey calling, rock climbing and knife throwing.

There will also be snacks, T-shirts for the first 700 kids and opportunities to get close to wildlife.

This family friendly event is open to the public and no pre-registration is required.
