Family Day fun stretches over two days in Langley

City, Township and local businesses and organizations are offering a range of fun or low-cost activities for the whole family

The day will feature appearances by BC Lion, Vancouver Stealth, Vancouver Giants, and Langley Rams players as well as retired CFLers.
