Fort hosts weekend campfires

The Fort Langley National Historic Site has family-oriented campfires most Friday and Saturday evenings this summer.

There are two themes: Royal Engineers Evening Campfire and Voyageur Evening Campfire. People buy their tickets in advance and the fort website has the dates. There may be limited numbers of tickets available at the gate.

For the Royal Engineer campfire, people can sign a gold licence, pan for gold, roast bannock over a fire and use an airsoft musket.

The Voyageur campfire spotlights the rugged life of an HBC voyageur. Tie on a Métis sash, carry a fur bale and roast bannock over a crackling fire. Learn the songs of the voyageurs and play the wooden spoons.

Tickets are family: $35; adult/Senior: $15.10, youth (age six to 16): $7.80; and child (three to five): $3.90. Kids two and younger get in with their families at no charge.

Evening campfire programs are included with the oTENTik camping.

Families are encouraged to bring their own picnics or marshmallows.
