Salmon will be flying at Marina Park on Saturday

Submitted

The fish will be jumping and tossing again at the Comox Nautical Days Second Annual Fish Tossing event, 4 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 2 in Marina Park.

The second annual event,  “spawned” by Simon’s Cycles and Salish Sea Foods, is free of charge and open to the first 20 teams that register at the Nautical Days info booth in Marina Park on Aug. 2. Teams of two must be 10 years and older, and those under 19 must have a parent/guardian signed waiver. All protective gear and chum salmon will be provided.

The event will proceed in the style of the World Famous Pike Street Market Fish Toss, similar to the age-old egg toss and or water balloon toss fashion.

Five teams will compete in heats with the winner of each heat proceeding to the final. Drop the fish and you are eliminated.

The grand prize toss team will win free processing of their tossed chum salmon at Salish Sea Foods in Comox; other prizes donated by Simon’s Cycles. All fish will be donated to the Mountainaire Avian Rescue Centre post event.
