NEW BREMEN — Young anglers lined the Miami and Erie Canal in New Bremen Saturday morning for an annual festival fishing derby.
The Bremenfest Fishing Derby kicked off at 10:30 a.m. Saturday and ran until noon, and the young anglers found success pulling large and small fish from the canal, including a variety of catfish and bass. While small fish were caught on a regular basis during the derby, talk of a 26-inch catfish being caught circled the canal.
NEW BREMEN — Teams of friends and families pulled out their best chili recipes to serve to festival-goers Saturday morning for an annual fundraiser.
The New Bremen EMS Chili Cook-Off kicked off at 8 a.m. Saturday at Crown Pavilion. The event, which raises money for the New Bremen EMS, is held during Bremenfest and brings crowds of people out to make and taste chili.
Jon Moore, Matt Opperman, Crag Nelson, Steve Greber, Matt Tontrep and Josh Ziggy come to compete in the chili cook-off every year, traveling from across the country to attend the event.
