The Summer Sizzler had its kickoff yesterday, June 15, and was met with great success. 

Arts Humboldt held a barbeque along with some local entertainment at the Uniplex. 

After the entertainment, people gathered in the Humboldt Aquatic Centre to send off water lanterns. 

Many more events are set to take place this week, such as dueling pianos and motocross. 

A video of the sendoff can be found below.
