A barbeque competition may be taking place in Kenora in the near future. Denise Lysak, vice president of corporate development for the Lake of the Woods Brewing Company, explains,

"We're in conversation with an individual in Winnipeg who is involved in organizing events like this. This barbeque would be sanctioned, and a competition like event," she said.

She says they're interested in adding something new to the many events that take place in Kenora during the summer.

 "We're interested in seeing what we can do to add to the flavour of the many events that already exist in Kenora. This is one we felt was sort of untapped and might be a real nice mix to add to the different things that already happen. Whether it's Harbourfest, or KBI or things like that," she said.

Lysak says they're looking to hold the competition on the Harbourfront during the May long weekend.
