City celebrates Community Day in Douglas Park

Saturday event will feature music, games, kids activities and, of course, food

Langley’s Community Day celebrations will be packed with fun things for the whole family to see, hear and do between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Saturday, June 20.

The event will be centered in Douglas Park, but there will be entertainment happening on three stages throughout the City’s downtown core.

Visitors to the park can take in a range of activities, including Highland Games,  a Kids Zone, Construction Zone and Firefighters Challenge. There will also be clowns, face painters, mascots, bingo and, of course, food.

Members of Circus Lab — Langley’s own version of Cirque du Soleil — will  perform all day behind the Spirit Square stage.  The young performers will wow the crowd with their acrobatics and aerial arts. Two Circus Lab artists were finalists in this year’s Langley Has Talent, with one member claiming third place for her ‘Silks’ act.

On the Spirit Square stage in Douglas Park, Liquid Courage will perform classic rock favourites from the 1950s and ’60s, from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Over at McBurney Lane, the Lounge Brothers will perform from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., with Dancing For Dessert — a group of ’50s and ’60s style dancers, hitting the floor from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Over at Innes Plaza, audiences can check out the Rockin’ Robins from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Due to declining participation, this year’s Community Day celebration will not include a parade.

The City of Langley will also celebrate its 60th birthday at Community Day in Douglas Park.
