Canada Day party in Fort Langley

On Canada Day, people across the country will be celebrating everything that makes our country great.

Why not join them by marking the occasion in Fort Langley, a place filled with history, art, culture, entertainment, and information?

A free, fun, family event will be jointly hosted by the Langley Centennial Museum and the BC Agricultural and Farm Museum, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., on Sunday, July 1.

Located at 9135 King St. in Fort Langley, the museum will be hosting a variety of Canada Day events and activities, including crafts, face painting, food vendors, balloon artistry, and old fashioned games and races.

This year, the celebration will also feature the new One Can Arts Festival, where many local artists will be selling their art onsite.

Other additions to this year’s event include a scavenger hunt throughout the museum and the Fowle Foto photo booth, which will be on hand so guests can take fun pictures to remember their 2012 Canada Day.

As well, a number of performances and workshops will be offered.

The main stage will feature the Red Stone Alley Band, Mr. Bubbles Children’s Show, and Swell Guys.

In the workshops, guests can learn about everything from sculpture, watercolours, and acrylic ink to how to create jewelry and make prints.

At noon, an opening ceremony will feature greetings from local dignitaries, Glisha Dela Cruz singing the national anthem, and a drumming performance by Team Cheondoong. Free Canada Day cake will also be served. For a full schedule, visit langleymuseum.org or see the June 21 and 28 Township Pages.
