With this year's theme: "Hooked on Fish Day," Patch wants to know what keeps you hooked on this annual festival? Tell us in the comments.

If you've never been, here's more information about what happened at the event:

The Fish Day Walk/Run at 8 a.m. (either an 8K or 2K) benefits Portal Inc., a nonprofit organization based in Grafton that serves adults with disabilities living in Ozaukee County. New this year to the event is chip-timing for the competitive 8K race, according to the event's website.

A parade starts at 10 a.m. starting at the corner of Wisconsin and Walters streets, and ending just in front of . (See the parade route).

There is also a car show in Upper Lake Park that runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.; the arts and crafts fair will be held in the same park, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

At 2:30 p.m., kids can register to participate in the soccer water fight: the Port Washington Fire Department soaks the kids while they try to make a goal. The actual event starts at 3 p.m.

The event also features several stages with live music. Check the lineup here.

For only the second time in the festival's 48-year history, chubs will not be used in the event's smoked-fish eating contest, according to an article on the Ozaukee Press. Of course, the contest will still be there — but, the fish will be different.
