Thick raindrops just before lunchtime Saturday had some at the Langley Pops! Festival cursing their bad luck.
But by mid-afternoon, the rain stopped and the fifth annual arts, culture, and heritage event at Douglas Park was in full swing.
Even with a few drops coming down, spirits were bright as the Celtic band Seabillys kick-started festivities as they played on the Spirit Square stage.
It was a multi-faceted festival with food sampling, including bannock, and on-stage entertainment ranging from Langley Has Talent winners Her Brothers to Han Yang Professional Chinese Dancers, and the Silver Diamond Country Dancers.
Encircling the stage was a wide range of artisan vendors including artists and jewelry makers.
An Arts, Culture and Heritage event, the goal of the Langley Pops! Festival is to provide local artists, organizations, and the community the opportunity to gather, experience and celebrate arts in our community.
