Automobiles and charity often go hand in hand in Langley, and they'll be linked again next weekend for the threeday Ride Into History Event.
Motorcycle enthusiasts will descend on Fort Langley and help raise money for the Salvation Army's Gateway of Hope, a homeless shelter and community outreach centre in Langley City.
A concert inside the wooden palisades of the Fort Langley National Historic Site will kick things off on Friday, July 27.
The live concert will feature Steve Elliott performing a variety of hits by Elvis Presley, as well as The JC Celebration Band paying tribute to Johnny Cash.
The concert is open to all ages and families with admission by donation.
On Saturday, July 28, the fort will be abuzz with activities, including the highlight of the weekend in the form of a three-hour scenic motorcycle ride and show & shine.
The day will finish with a salmon banquet provided by the Kwantlen First Nation.
Registration will be available up until event date.
On Sunday, July 29, the Fort Langley Lions will host a pancake breakfast which will be open to the public by donation, and will cap the festivities.
The ride's aim is to raise both money and awareness to help end homelessness in the community.
"The Ride into History promises to be a lot of fun, but it highlights an important issue that affects us all," said Langley Township Mayor Jack Froese.
Three credit Unions have joined together to act as title sponsors and the Ride Into History is pleased to be partnering with Envision Financial, Prospera Credit Union and Aldergrove Credit Union.
