Festivals & Local Fun: Langley Community Day

 

It must be Wednesday since I’m blogging about the local fun happening this weekend in Langley.  As a resident of Langley, I’m always impressed that we can find lots of fun on the weekends without having to drive far.  The highlighted festival this weekend is: Langley Community Day. The Local Fun this weekend is the Fort Langley National Historic Site.

Weekend Festivals and Local Fun - Langley Community Day

Festival: Langley Community Day (City of Langley)

This Saturday, June 17 from 11am to 3pm head over to the City of Langley Community Day festival. This festival is taking place at Douglas Park (20550 Douglas Crescent). The theme for 2017 is to honour Canada’s 150th birthday. Almost every 30 minutes a new act will be hitting the stage: from First Nations drummers to line dancers and even rock bands!

I’m looking forward to the Fire Rescue Kids Challenge to see how my munchkin will try her best to step up to the challenge.  Also interesting is that there will be both a Teen activity zone and a Kids activity zone. BBQ concession for those in need of lunch. Best of all, the Langley Community Day is free!

Local Fun: Fort Langley National Historic Site

This weekend the Fort Langley National Historic Site is hosting Aboriginal Day on Saturday and Sunday (June 17 and 18). Events are planned from 11am to 4:30pm.  There are 4 key events that are repeated three times each day.  I’d plan to be there, ready to participate, on the hour or half hour. In addition, I’d intend on being there for 2 hours to participate in each of they key events. The 4 key events are:

  • Drumming & storytelling
  • Native Plant Walk
  • Tour of the Salmon Walk
  • Salmon Run (family activity)

Best of all is that in 2017, admission to the Fort is free!

See Ya’ Later

See you at the City of Langley Community Day or at the Fort this weekend!
