Catch of the days

Malcolm Island rolled out the welcome mat for its annual Salmon Days summer festival last weekend.

SOINTULA—Malcolm Island rolled out the welcome mat for its annual Salmon Days summer festival last weekend, and visitors responded on a brilliant, sun-splashed weekend.

From the opening party Friday at the Whale’s Rub Pub to the downtown street party Sunday, the weekend was filled with fun, food, entertainment and, of course, salmon.

The cornerstone of the event was Saturday’s parade down 1st Street, followed by the Sea Dogs’ traditional pit barbecue salmon dinner at the local ballfield, where entertainers took to the infield stage and kids were treated to face-paining, bounce-a-rama, various games and a puppet show.

Meanwhile, artists throughout Sointula were showcased in a series of tours each day.
