You might think that it's the cars that power the Langley Good Times Cruise-In around the block and back again.
But actually, it's the volunteers. Indeed, volunteers like those who comprise the engine that has driven the annual (except for one brief rest) Langley Good Times Cruise-In since the mid-1990s embody the spirit that you can find in every moving part under Langley's hood.
Undoubtedly, that is why the volunteers who keep the Cruise-In purring smoothly also keep numerous other volunteer and charity efforts throughout the community operating in high-gear throughout the year.
Every penny raised by the Langley Good Times Cruise-In ends up in the fuel tanks of local charities.
Somehow, that adds even more muscle to all those hundreds of shiny autos - from roadsters to hot rods, from antiques to sleekly modern beauties - that will line the street through downtown Langley City once again this Saturday.
And it adds extra purpose (whether or not they realize it!) to the tens of thousands of spectators who will arrive in the downtown core to ogle the paint-jobs and engines and sleek, babied vehicles that are the rightful pride and joy of those who delight in delighting others with the automotive artistry they have accomplished. Every year, the Langley Good Times Cruise-In brings in huge crowds with their dollars for merchants - and for local participating charities - to experience one of this community's biggest, boldest, and most charitable endeavours.
Volunteers... start your engines!
