Long lines at SeafoodFest salmon barbecue

SeafoodFest began 34 years ago as a salmon feast to raise money for the Ballard Chamber of Commerce. Today, the popular salmon BBQ is still a chamber fundraiser and the heart and soul of this weekend’s event.

For most of the midday hours, a long line stretched down 22nd Ave. Seafood lovers waited in anticipation for an $8 serving of salmon.

Master griller Warren Aakervik holds court for his 33rd annual barbecue. Behind him are two big enclosed grills with burning alder inside.

Big fillets of salmon, donated by Trident Seafood, are placed onto the grill.

The finished product. Yum! Well worth the wait.
