On Saturday, Aug. 10, the parking lot of the Plaza Hotel just off Victoria Street will become a salmon barbecue cook-off venue. Five or six contestants will compete in two categories for prizes and a people’s choice award will also be given out.

For a small fee, event organizers said spectators will get a chance to taste a variety of barbecued salmon samples to pick a favourite.

The event is based on the Great Fraser River Salmon BBQ, which takes place annually in Hope.

Details are still being finalized for the event, but competitor spots are still available and chefs and restaurant owners are encouraged to apply, and to do so, should contact organizer Ron Johnson at
