Owen Petrey gets some help from his dad, Joe Petrey, as he baits his hook with a worm Saturday during the fishing derby in J.F. Gregory Park.

As part of the Georgia Cities Week festivities, the city of Richmond Hill and the Fort McAllister Sport Fishing Club sponsored the derby and offered free hot dogs, chips and soda for lunch, as well as fishing tackle for those who didn't have any.

Other events for Georgia Cities Week include an open house of the city's police and fire departments, as well as City Hall, from 8:30 a.m. to noon Thursday.
