For the 16th year in a row, the businesses of Brookswood are hosting a family-friendly day of fun on June 13.
The annual Brookswood Summerfest happens in the area of 200th Street and 40th Avenue.
Itâ€™s a day of music, arts, food and more.
The organizers have arranged for local street entertainers, Scruffles the Clown, face painting, a balloon artist, prizes, draws (including one for childrenâ€™s bikes), fine art and jewelry, hot dogs, and more.
The event runs 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., and at 1 p.m. thereâ€™s the official unveiling of artist Felicity Holmesâ€™ mural on the side of the Brookswood Royal Bank.
Tattoo, the decorated horse statue that has twice been vandalized, has been repaired and will be on display in front of Ellaâ€™s Boutique where author Marilyn Dyer will be doing a book reading and signing copies of her anti-bullying book Tattoo the Painted Horse.
The horse sculpture, one of several around Langley to signify the importance of the horse in this commnityâ€™s history, was almost destroyed the night before last yearâ€™s festival.
The Brookswood Merchants Association hosts the day of fun.
The merchants also offer activites, treats, giveaways and promotions in their various businesses just for Summerfest.
