PHOTOS: Clear skies bring out smiles for Fort Langley May Day festivities

Summer-like weather in spring brought out huge crowds to a long-standing tradition in Fort Langley on Victoria Day Monday.

The 93rd annual May Day Parade was a big success, as entries travelled north-south along Glover Road before turning up 88th Avenue to Trattle Street.

The longest running May Day parade in B.C. was the feature attraction, but there was lots to do before and after the parade.

The day started off at the Fort Langley Lions Hall with the Fort Langley Lions Club’s annual pancake and sausage breakfast, with proceeds going to support the local club’s charities.

After the parade, the May Queen and Princesses were piped into Fort Langley Community Park, where there was May Pole Dancing followed by live entertainment through until 4 p.m..

The day capped off Monday afternoon with the famous Fort Langley Lions chicken barbecue, also at the park.
