Community welcomed to Langley City

The annual Community Day took over Douglas Park Saturday. See Langley City’s Canada 150 video.

Langley City’s annual Community Day Festival was an early celebration of Canada’s 150th birthday.

The festival was held in Douglas Park on Saturday, June 17, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

City firefighters set up a number of attractions for kids, including a firefighter obstacle course that allowed kids to try out the hoses.

There was a kids activity zone, live music and dancing by local groups, drop-in street hockey, and a small farmers market.
