Young people from several area schools took part in a local tradition that stretches back more than nine decades.
The annual May Day festivities to mark Queen Victoria’s birthday date back 95 years.
This year students from Fort Langley Elementary, Yorkson Creek Middle School, Willoughby Elementary, Langley Fine Arts School and Coghlan Elementary competed for the title of May Queen.
The young contestants demonstrated their social skills at the annual tea Sunday in the Fort Langley Community Hall.
Chosen were Emerson Curtis as the May Queen for 2017. Her maids of honour are Abigail Zimmerman and Alexandra Kupka while Elene Facer was named Miss Canada.
They will take part in May Day festivities next month.
