A CELEBRATION to mark the life of Byron legend Mick Cambray, aka Mexican Mick, will be held at Hastings Point on May 18.

Mick, who opened Byron Bay's first restaurant in 1969 which traded for 14 years cementing its place as a Bay icon, died aged 83 in December last year.

His family staged a private cremation service.

The event at The Big 4, North Star Holiday Resort this month will be a chance for friends to farewell the larger than life character.

Daughter Cindi Cambray said they would be reminiscing about her dad before congregating at the headland to watch her brother Larry fly over in a Bi-Plane to scatter his ashes out to sea.

"All appreciators of Mick and the Mexican Mick food and memories are welcome," she said.

Inquiries to Cindi on 0488266263.
