Fort Langley the natural place to celebrate Victoria Day

If it’s true that everyone loves a parade, then everyone will love MayDay. The holiday Monday will feature a parade down Glover Road through Fort Langley’s downtown.

The 93rd annual Fort Langley May Day Parade starts at 11 a.m. and is followed by a local community fair.

One of the parade participants will be the Fort Langley National Historic Site, located just a few blocks from the parade route. A visit to the site is a nice way to celebrate the long-weekend especially with the half price admission.

Adults and seniors get in for less than $4 while youth are $1.95 and a family or group of up to seven is less than $10.

The fort is open with activities from the introductory tour at 10:30 a.m. to the closing at the trading post at 4:30 p.m.

Visitors can also take in a farm and garden tour, coopering, historic weapons, and blacksmith demonstrations, and can even purchase the opportunity to fire an airsoft musket.
