Media Release

Langley City, British Columbia – A fusion of music is coming to Douglas Park Spirit Square on Saturday, June 16 for the 24th annual Community Day event.  Starting at 11:00 a.m., the ‘Multicultural music’ themed celebration will feature groups of talented musicians and performers, a delicious concession fundraiser in support of Douglas Park Community School (meals $5 or under), and an assortment of free activities and games for kids, teens, adults and seniors alike.

“This year’s event focuses on multiculturalism and diversity, and features musical performers that represent the various cultures in our neighbourhoods and surrounding communities,” said Mayor Ted Schaffer, “Community Day is all about inspiring individuals, businesses and community groups to come together to strengthen community pride and reinforce community togetherness and belonging.”

Langley City’s signature event has activities for all ages including face painting, kids crafts, bouncy castles and a bouncy castle slide combo, Extreme Rush, 77’ Obstacle Course, Monster Basketball, ball hockey arena, Hamster Ball Race, Hungry Hippo Chow Down, The Eliminator, 9-Hole Mini Golf Course, Rock Wall, Bingo, and a Kids Fire Firefighter Challenge. And it is all FREE!

Residents are also encouraged to bring your bike to the event for the RCMP free bike registration program. Registering your bike is important; the information pertaining to your bike is needed to assist Law Enforcement personnel and you if you are making an insurance claim. Take just a few minutes out of your day to join the Langley RCMP for this FREE bike registration.

Have your say on the One-Way!

Visit the Fraser Highway One-Way Project booth at Community Day, and have your say on potential changes to Fraser Highway between 204 Street and 206 Street. We want to hear from you on how we can create a more welcoming, pedestrian-friendly downtown core. Tell us what you love about the current One-Way, and give feedback on possible improvements, such as patios, street amenities, public art, and creation of flexible green spaces.
