The last winner of the 48th Port Alberni Salmon Festival has finally received his winnings.
Robin Hayes’s derby ticket was drawn in a random draw of all 1,828 tickets sold, festival president Dan Washington said.
Gone Fishin’ of Port Alberni sponsored the draw.
Hayes, who was a second-place winner in Salmon Fest 46 in 2017, was happy with the $1,000 he won just for entering the derby.
The Salmon Festival is already starting to work on the 2020 edition. Volunteers are welcome.
