Langley residents have flocked to this year’s Pacific National Exhibition (the PNE), which runs until Sept. 2.
Asked why people go to the fair every year, organizes admit the answers vary, but one consistent message is shared. For many it’s a tradition.
Whether it’s the food, the animals, the concerts, or the new exhibitions, the reasons for people to visit the PNE all seem to be rooted in the tradition of celebrating the end of the summer with friends or family.
There are so many engaging ways for people to enjoy the PNE. They can enjoy a feast, take in a show, challenge each other to ride the mechanical bulls, take some fun family photos, or go for a spin on one of the many thrilling rides.
This weekend, for instance, the CN 100 exhibit is still here, people can catch Reveen in the Pacific Coliseum, or guests can visit the Moon Coin Show Band in Festival Park.
One of the consistent highlights has been the musical finale each night called– Electric Fire at 10:15 p.m.
After one night’s show, Stephanie Valdivieso shared, “The pyrotechnic show had the skies erupting with flying rockets, exploding fire, and dancers! It was a performance filled with intensity. I definitely felt the heat!”
