KAMLOOPS - Justin Trudeau is coming to town again, this time to enjoy a barbecue for supporters of the federal Liberal Party.

The Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo Federal Liberals have planned a free barbecue to thank riding supporters and Trudeau recently announced he and his family would join in the festivities at Riverside Park on July 23 at 5 p.m.

No formal agenda is planned though the group does expect to discuss social and economic issues and plans on heading over to the Rotary Bandshell after the barbecue where blues funk band Boogie Patrol will take to the stage from 7-8:30 p.m. as part of the Music in the Park series.

Trudeau was last in Kamloops in January when he came through town as a leadership candidate. He was elected as party leader in April.
