Los Hermanos Familia

It’s our quinceanera!
Join us for the 15th Annual “Vamos a Pescar, Let’s Go Fishing” Event & Saturday, August 3, 2024, from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. Buddy Holly Lake located on N. University and Cesar Chavez Drive…AND IT’S FREE!

Brought to you by Los Hermanos Familia a local nonprofit that uses fishing as a hook to bring families together. This event is organized by Los Hermanos Familia and Latino Lubbock Magazine.
With special thanks to our title sponsor – ______

The lake is stocked with hungry catfish, and no one is required to have a fishing license on this day and during this time.
All children up to 17 years old must be accompanied by an adult & that’s the purpose of the event – to bring families together.

Families are encouraged to prepare for 100-plus-degree weather elements – bring water, shade, sunscreen, etc. However, always prepare for rain, as this is Lubbock and you never know what you’re gonna get, LOL!

Bring snacks and beverages, and pretty much anything for a comfortable fishing day. Bring your lucky fishing rod and your special bait.

Lunch will be provided for registered participants (only with the ticket provided at check-in).

T-shirts will be available on-site for a $5 donation. Lots of outdoor activities relative to fishing, and family fun.

This event was sparked by the last request to go fishing with the entire family that was filled by founder Christy Martinez-Garcia, and co-founder Frank Garcia, whose father made a day before his death.

While his dad was a loving and dedicated father, Frank said that often the demands of a farmer would prevent his dad from being a part of family outings and activities.

The death of his father impacted the family severely, as his death was sudden. As such this event encourages families to spend and enjoy time together.

All participants must PREREGISTER.
