What do you get when you combine Elks and fish? You don’t get a fish with antlers, but you do get a fishing derby, and on Saturday morning, fishers flocked to the Elks Fishing Derby that the folks from the fraternal organization set up for ages 5 and up between the Peoria and Galena Avenue bridges. Trophies were awarded in each age group. The Petunia Festival wrapped up Sunday, but there was still plenty to do during the celebration of all things Dixon. Among the events: Pancakes in the Park, a talent show, music, and, of course, the parade – all capped off by the Petunia Fest pyrotechnics.
