Head to McBurney Plaza Aug. 29 to enjoy the Sounds of Summer.

Mark your calendars for these must-do community events

From fall rec programs to one more summer movie, there’s lots happening in Langley City!

Labour Day might be on the horizon, but if you’re not quite ready to say goodbye to summer, Langley City has the solution: a busy calendar of events with the whole family in mind!

1. Sounds of Summer: Head to McBurney Plaza Wednesday, Aug. 29 for the final Pop-Up Play of summer. The free, interactive, outdoor drop-in play group features crafts, big board games to play, puzzles to complete, colouring and more!

Return to the Plaza from 7 to 8 p.m. Aug. 29 for the final performance of this year’s Sounds of Summer concert series. Each week features a different Lower Mainland artist and genre of music in this fun, family-friendly event.

2. Sensational Summer Movies: We can’t close out summer without one more free outdoor Summer Movie in the Park. Bring your lawn chairs and blankets to Langley’s Douglas Park Sept. 14 to catch Ferdinand (rated PG) on the big screen. The fun begins at 7:30 p.m. with the movie starting at dusk.

3. Celebrate City Park! Head to City Park Sept. 20 and join Langley City in celebrating the new playground, waterpark and field upgrades, with live entertainment, fun activities and food options available for purchase from 4 to 7 p.m. Wondering what’s coming next? City staff will also offer a sneak peek at what the city has planned next for the space!

4. Salute to local artists: Celebrate the arts in Langley with the Art Crawl in Downtown Langley City Sept. 29 and 30! Enjoy exhibiting and demonstrating local artists in local businesses, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday. Visual and 3D artists will share their talents, while a selection of musical artists will add to the event. Check the Langley City website closer to the date to download a map for your self-guided walking tour.

5. Sign up to play: Keep the fun going right through fall with a favourite activity or brand new experience through Langley City Recreation. Belly Dance or Ballroom Dance? Pickleball or Parkour? Visit the Douglas Recreation Centre or Timms Community Centre or check out the Fall Recreation Guide online for a look at all that’s coming up. With activities and events for all ages, your new passion may be just a class away!
