ILWACO - Big band brass, sparkling lights, a festive marina setting, and the wafting aroma of juicy grilled chicken and seared tuna will make the Waterfront Dance and Barbecue at the Port of Ilwaco a memory-making summer night. The party is slated for Aug. 5 at the Port of Ilwaco.

The BBQ, with chicken and fresh tuna as well as an oyster bar and beer garden, will be served picnic style from 6 to 8 p.m., with music by the North Coast Big Band and dancing from 7 to 10 p.m.
