The annual family event has been dubbed Willy Wonka Fun Night this year, and features carnival games and candy for kids as well as coffee for adults (plus maybe a bit of candy, too).

Langley Immanuel CRC is hosting a community festival at the Langley Fundamental Elementary School at 21789 50th Ave. on Nov. 1 from 1 to 4 p.m.
The afternoon will include fun for everyone with face-painting, balloon animals, a caricature artist, floral arranging, bouncy castle, and carnival games. The event and activities are free.

Langley School District is working with organizers of TEDxVancouver to find the next winner of the event’s youth initiative.
Youth are challenged to move outside their comfort zones and consider if they have what it takes to be a future TEDxVancouver speaker. It’s about having a unique story to tell and being ready to tell it.
Those between age eight and 18 are eligible to enter via a YouTube or Vimeo video that explains, “Who am I?” and “Who would I like to be?”
Submissions will be accepted until Nov. 2 with full details available at www.tedxvancouver.com.
