For more edible opportunities, Brennan’s Mens and Ladies Wear and Shoppers Drug Mart will be holding barbecues while Cedarbrook Bakery will be handing out free cookies.

Various businesses will also be offering treats like popcorn and cotton candy in front of their stores.

“It’s our way of fostering a sense of community,” Stewart explained. “Brookswood is unlike any other pocket of Langley. People really come out to support each other.”

Stewart also explained that the Merchants Association relies on donations to keep the Brookswood Summerfest going.
