Langley Arts Alive: Fun was had downtown

Some would consider the comfortable temperatures under a ceiling of clouds to be near perfect conditions for a summer festival.

Judging from the sheer number of visitors to the 21st annual Arts Alive Festival in downtown Langley on Saturday, that assumption would be correct.

The one-way section of Fraser Highway from 204th to 206th Street was closed to traffic from 10 a.m. to after 5 p.m. to accomodate the festival, which this year showcased a variety of art mediums including wood carvers, painters, authors, sculptors quilters, glassblowers, as well a wide range of music.

The kids zone was a popular place for little ones and their parents, with a bouncy castle, facepainting, Queen Elsa from the movie Frozen (as played by Alyssa Nielsen), music by

Robyn and Ryleigh Gillespie of Langley, and even a giant T-Rex.

The Arts Alive Showcase Stage in McBurney Lane featured Jet Tangerine, Mike Westerings, Michael Freidman, De La Terra, Heidi McCurdy, Joe Given, and Sudanda.
