The 69th annual Steveston Salmon Festival is on as tens of thousands of visitors have come out to the fishing village to enjoy a pancake breakfast, parade, live entertainment, trade show, crafts and children’s activities.

The parade runs from 10 a.m. to noon followed by an afternoon full of events.

One of the main attractions is the ever-popular and world famous salmon barbecue. More than 1,200 pounds of wild salmon filets will be served, after being grilled over open fire pits. The popular treat, $15 per plate, sells out every year.

For complete details including a schedule of events, parade map, road closure notice and parking information, please visit the Steveston Salmon Festival website at www.stevestonsalmonfest.ca.
