The Brooklyn Park Lions are hosting what's billed as the 'World's Largest Smelt Fry' in late April.
It's the longest running annual event in the city and is expected to draw upwards of 700 people a night. In years past they served up 2,200 pounds of the fish.
The Lions Smelt Fry will be April 24-26, 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
The fry takes place at the Brooklyn Park National Guard Armory, 5500 85th Ave. N. in Brooklyn Park.
Proceeds from the event will go to provide free eyeglasses for kids in need in Brooklyn Park and other non-profit groups.
