Don’t miss the Father’s Day salmon bbq this Sunday in White Rock!

55th annual salmon bbq at Semiahmoo Fish & Game Club

55th annual salmon bbq at Semiahmoo Fish & Game Club

With 54 years of experience throwing salmon barbecues, the Semiahmoo Fish and Game Club surely has it down to a science.

“We usually bring in about 400 pounds of salmon for the event,” said president Bob Donnelly. “And we have a special recipe.”

Prepared by long-term club members using a traditional sauce, the salmon is cooked on grills over open alder wood fires for all to see.

The barbecue, which is being held on Father’s Day (June 17), will include salmon and side dishes, of course, but there will be hamburgers and hot dogs for those who don’t like fish.

The event will also feature face painting, archery demonstrations, trail walks, rubber duck races, artwork and salmon fry releases for the kids.

“There are people who have been coming since the first one in the ’50s,” Donnelly said. “People come early, get their favourite spot and stay for the day. There’s a lot to do.”

For further information about the Father’s Day salmon bbq event, please see Semiahmoo Fish and Game Club – Father’s Day.
