Over the course of two jam-packed days (August 25th and 26th), thousands of people celebrated multiculturalism through food, music, dance, and art at the Willoughby Community Park in Langley. Some of the highlights of the festival were sports tournaments, children’s entertainment, Bard in the Valley, tons of delicious food and tasty drinks, live performances, art vendors, and last but not least…the 21stAnnual Great Canadian Volkswagen Show!
We were thrilled about how many residents and visitors came into our Visitor’s Centre to ask questions or get information on things to do in our community. We heard rave reviews of the Afrobeat Dance Group’s performance and Bard in the Valley, as well as sights of people drinking fruity drinks made from hollowed out pineapples… mmm, delicious! The weather was perfect; not too hot, not too cold and it sure was exciting to meet people from all over the lower mainland and world! If you didn’t get a chance to come this year, keep an eye out for it next summer!
