As Langley City’s Community Day turns 25, this Saturday’s celebrations will be bigger and better than ever at Douglas Park!
In honour of the 25th anniversary, the free Community Day Festival will spill over from the park into neighbouring streets, with family-friendly festivities from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. June 15.
Enjoy live entertainment and roaming performers, an artisan marketplace, food trucks, a beer garden and 40+ community information booths where you can learn about the array of services available in Langley City. Kids can get busy in the activity zones and on bouncy castles, and rise to the fire rescue challenge.
“Come celebrate your community and share in one of the longest-running annual events in the City of Langley!” says Rosemary Wallace, Community Day Committee Chair. “I hope to see many of our residents, visitors and friends from neighbouring communities take part in this fun-filled event for all.”
