Two Langley farms host family fun Saturday

Saturday sees a variety of activities at two longtime agritourism sites.

Families looking for some fun can head to central Langley for two farm events that help community groups.

Family Fun Day at the Farm supports the Township of Langley Firefighters’ Charitable Society.

The Sept. 12 event is at Krause Berry Farm and Estate Winery.

Township firefighters will be serving up waffles topped with, what else, berries. The public can meet firefighters and check out Township firefighting trucks.

The Remax Special Events Team jumping castle will be there for people to enjoy and there will be hot air balloon rides, a pie eating contest, face painting and more.

The farm is at 6179 248th St. and the events run 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Activities are by donation.

The firefighters charitable society holds various activities during the year to raise funds for specific causes, such as Langley Memorial Hospital, the Burn Fund, the Langley School District Foundation, the Canadian Cancer Society and Muscular Dystrophy Canada.

The other event of Saturday is at J.D. Farms.

An Aldergrove Rotary Club barbecue by donation will raise funds for the Terry Fox Foundation.

The eighth annual Fall Festival and Customer Appreciation Event runs 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at 24726 52nd Ave.

The farm is marking its 36th anniversary.

There will be samples from vendors, activities, face painting, pony rides, bouncy castles, and the 4-H animal petting area. People can also take in cooking demonstrations and music.

Kids are also advised to bring their little friends for the Teddy Bear Clinic.
