A two-day festival in south Langley escaped raindrops over the weekend.
Even so, a blanket of cloud was the suspected reason why attendance was down from previous years at the annual Country Celebration at Campbell Valley Regional Park. There were an estimated 3,000 visitors to the fair Saturday and roughly the same number Sunday.
This marked the fifth year that Jeremy Plotkin, who coordinates community events for Metro Vancouver Parks, has organized the celebration.
"I'm still learning the ropes," he said. "Everybody that I've talked to has really enjoyed themselves, and had a great time," Plotkin told the Langley Advance Sunday afternoon.
Plotkin called the event, now in its 35th year, "an old time country fair that's really community based and community driven. We've got lots of animals for the kids to see and lots of activities for the kids to do with face-painting, kite making, and Nylon Zoo storytelling."
