Although it has been a magical winter in the Lower Mainland, with many snow days and the opportunity to lace up our skates and enjoy the neighbourhood’s frozen ponds and lakes, don’t forget that skating can be enjoyed all year-round!
Check out some of the awesome things happening around Langley.
The first week of January is often the signal for us to all resume our daily routines after the holiday period. For the past few years in Langley, the onset of January is also congruent with the beginning of the National Lacrosse League season for our Vancouver Stealth. What’s not routine about the Stealth this year is that they are off to the best start they’ve had since relocating to Langley.
This December, Langley was blessed to receive a good sized dose of winter magic. The snow fell, the trees glistened, and the community transformed into a wonderland. It’s not often that we receive a good blanketing of the white stuff, but when we do we definitely enjoy it every way we can. Below are some snapshots of our local winter wonderland shared with the #langleyfresh hashtag on Instagram. Enjoy.
Every year families enjoy the festivities that the holiday season brings at the Fort Langley National Historic Site. The annual Heritage Holiday at the Fort event brings visitors and locals from near and far, filling their hearts with joy, their stomach’s with good food, and their minds with interesting tid-bits of information about the origins of our province and life in the 1800’s, all amidst a festive, historical ambience.
Christmas in Williams Park is an annual event that takes place in Langley and sees families enjoying the beautiful light displays year after year. The event is completely run by volunteers who spend countless hours setting up the display which takes place in Williams Park, located at 6595 238 St. The Society who runs the event is moving towards total environmentally friendly energy use, so most of the lights you’ll see are LED’s.
Whether you’re embracing it or trying to deny it, fall has arrived in Langley. The air has become crisp, the leaves are changing colour, and school is back in session. The most telling sign of all? The pumpkins.
The leaves are changing and the days are getting shorter which means fall is upon us! I personally love the fall season, whether it’s snuggling under a blanket with a book and hot tea or wondering around on cool sunny fall days, you can’t seem to go wrong with the fall season. We’ve put together some fall date ideas for you, a significant other or with your family! Check out what Langley has to offer.
