GET ready to dance, as hundreds of dancers and musicians from different cultures will be entertaining you from the main stage of the Langley Canada Day and the Langley International Festival on June 30 from 3 to 8 p.m., and July 1 from 11 a.m. to 11 pm. This is the first time when two of the biggest celebrations of Langley have merged to have one big celebration.
Moreover, the Langley International Festival Society has joined hands with the Fraser Valley Regional Library, Langley Events Centre, Langley School District, Tourism Langley, and Township of Langley to put on a four-day (from June 28 to July 1) spectacular celebration like never seen before in this growing community. The celebrations will be held at Willoughby Community Park just outside the Langley Events Centre, located at 7888 – 200 Street. There will be no entry fee and the parking will be free.
The first two days will be the sports fest, and the traditional celebrations will be held on June 30 and July 1 that will include the main stage entertainment, marketplace, vendors, international pavilions, children’s’ entertainment, Kidz Have Talent, rides, a car show, an assortment of ethnic foods, dog show and various other attractions.
The parade of nations on July 1 will be another entertaining activity where people from over 70 countries will be participating. Everyone is invited to come and enjoy multicultural entertainment through colorful ethnic performances, visual arts, sports, visiting an international marketplace, taste different cultural foods, and many more activities.
There are still a few spots available for volunteers, sponsors, and vendors to be a part of this celebration. Also, there will be an exciting and rewarding contest for kids aged 12 or under. If your child is a good singer, dancer or can play a musical instrument, this is a wonderful opportunity for them to showcase their talent.
