The Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism will host a free entrance day and open house at all state parks on Saturday.

Visitors will have the opportunity to enjoy a variety of events at most parks. Meade State Park will offer office tours all day, sell permits and outdoor store items, take reservations and answer questions. The park will have a drawing for one hoodie, two youth T-shirts and two adult T-shirts. The office is open from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.

In an effort to help raise money for the OK Kids Day event, the park will have a Trout Derby. Registration is to begin at 7 a.m. at the park office located on the south side of the lake. The Derby will run from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Saturday only. The cost of registration is $10 for adults and $5 for kids. Prize categories for the adult division are: Biggest Fish and Heaviest Stringer. Participants can enter only one category in the adult division. Prize categories for the kid's division are: biggest fish and smallest fish.

You must be registered for the derby to be eligible for the prizes and have a valid fishing license and trout permit.

The OK Kids Day committee members will be selling hot dogs, chips and water. All proceeds will benefit the OK Kids Day event.

For more information, call the park office at (620) 873-2572.
