It’s a fun day out for the whole family – as well as a tasty treat for Dad.
Semiahmoo Fish and Game Club’s Father’s Day salmon barbecue returns for its 36th edition this Sunday (June 19) at the club, 1284 184 St.
The famed barbecued salmon dinner – marinated to a secret recipe and complete with baked potato, salad, pickles and bun ($14 for adults, less for children) – will be served from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
But activities for children and families begin earlier, at 11 a.m., said Art Wahl, a director of the club.
“We have a petting zoo for the kids and we’re also going to be releasing 25,000 fry,” he said. “The kids are each given a little bucket of the small fish that they release themselves – they love that.”
In addition to the salmon, hot dogs and burgers will be served, Wahl said, and families can also work up an appetite walking many of the easy-to-follow trails on the 29-acre property during the event, a major fundraiser for the Little Campbell River hatchery.
“There’s lots of parking and picnic tables,” Wahl said. “Lots of families come out together and make a day of it.”
