Jul 07, 2015
Township of Langley, BC (Tuesday, July 7, 2015) – Approximately ten thousand people took part in the Canada Day festivities at Willoughby Community Park on Wednesday, July 1.
Hosted by the Langley Events Centre, the Township of Langley and 93.7 JRfm, the park grounds next to the LEC were busy with residents of all ages who came out and enjoyed live music from artists such as King & Cash, Robyn and Ryleigh, Washboard Union and headliner Rod Black. In addition to the great music being performed, there were large inflatables to play in, potato sack races, a mechanical bull and special appearances by the Langley Rivermen and Vancouver Stealth. Midway through the day, the Canada Day ceremony was hosted by Township of Langley Mayor Jack Froese, Fort Langley-Aldergrove MLA Rich Coleman, Langley MLA Mary Polak and Langley MP Mark Warawa, who all welcomed the crowd before Citizen Judge Dane Minor performed a Canadian citizenship reaffirmation ceremony. To close the ceremony, Chris Buck Band led the crowd in ‘Oh Canada’.
“Good music, good food, and fun in the sun: this was the perfect way to celebrate our nation’s birthday,” said Township of Langley Mayor Jack Froese. “The weather was excellent, there was a lot for kids to see and do, and plenty of great local entertainment to enjoy. It was wonderful to see so many people having fun at this family-oriented celebration, which also raised money for a great cause.”
As a part of the event, the JRBQ offered some great food options and proceeds raised went to Basics for Babies. In total $3,365.00 was generated for the popular JRfm charity.
“It was great to see a large number of families and friends be a part of Canada Day in Langley,” said Langley Events Centre Director of Business Development, Jared Harman. “The partnership with JRfm and of course, the Township, really made it a special event.”
This year’s event was sponsored by Super Save Group, Langley Times, Otter Co-op, Tourism Langley, Redwoods Golf Course, Hopcott Premium Meats, Save-on-Foods and Bad Boy Entertainment.
