Fort Langley May Day Parade draws thousands

Dry, comfortable weather complemented Fort Langley’s longstanding Victoria Day celebration.

The rain stayed away, but the crowds didn’t which was great news for organizers of Fort Langley’s May Day festivities on Holiday Monday.

A half hour before the 94th annual May Day got underway just after 11 a.m., the sidewalks on both sides of Glover Road were filled with thousands of people in anticipation of a parade that featured 60 floats including marching bands, community groups, and politicians including Fort Langley-Aldergrove MLA Rich Coleman, who was behind the wheel of a Vancouver Giants’ Zamboni.

After the hour-long parade, crowds gathered at Fort Langley Community Park where the May Queens and the Royal Party will be piped in.

There was traditional May Pole dancing, food, and entertainment until 4 p.m.
