Saanichton fires up its annual BBQ

Saanichton Community BBQ happens August 18 at Centennial Park

The Saanichton Village Association and the Central Saanich Lions Club are joining forces to co-host the fourth annual Saanichton Community Barbecue on Saturday, Aug. 18.

The event, which will feature a bouncy castle, pony hop racing, bocce ball, ladder golf and ring toss, runs from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Centennial Park, a change in location from previous years’ barbecues which were held at Saanichton Green.

Food and drink will be by donation and will be prepared by the Central Saanich Lions Club.

“This is the fourth year we’ve done the barbecue, but this is a little bit different because [the Saanichton Village Association] is joining forces with the Central Saanich Lions to provide this event to the community,” said Jan Carroll, one of the event organizers and SVA board members. “Because Central Saanich Days is not going forward this year, this will give the community a chance to gather at a similar event,” she said.
