Summer in the City – Aug. 9 to Aug. 16

Dive-in movies, Irish fiddles, and an afternoon of magic

There are a lot more live performances and get togethers in Langley City this summer – here’s what people will find happening this week, Aug. 6 to Aug. 16.

Dancing in the Park welcomes movers and shakers to Douglas Park, Friday, Aug. 9 for an evening of couple’s lessons from 7 – 9 p.m. Taught by local instructors from Dancing for Dessert, anyone is welcome to hop up on the Spirit Square stage and give some lessons a try.

There will be artisan crafts for sale, live entertainment, a barbecue, and “Try on a Disability” exercises so people can gain insight into other’s lives.
