Residents of Langford have been asking for a Canada Day event to take place in their community for years.
Now, those wishes have come true!
On July 1st, Langford residents will be able to enjoy the first annual Canada Day celebration at Starlight Stadium from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m, according to an announcement by the City of Langford.
“Langford residents have been requesting a family orientated Canada Day event for a long time now, and I’m glad the City could deliver on that request. It will be an exciting long weekend in Langford with many free and affordable events for Langford residents of all ages. It is important for the community to have something fun to look forward to.” said Langford Mayor Stew Young.
“It has been a very challenging time over the last couple of years, and now more than ever we need to connect with friends and neighbours and get back to normal.”
The free event will feature a pancake breakfast (by donation), live music by local musician Vince Vaccaro as the headliner, face painting, a hot wing eating contest, brick yard games on the turf, artist painting demonstration, a blue-ribbon pie baking contest and more.
West Shore RCMP will be on-site during the day conducting K9 Unit demonstrations and Langford Fire Rescue will also be hosting a firefighter obstacle course.
The city is currently working with indigenous relations and communications consultant, Charla Huber, to coordinate a special presentation with local First Nations.
The concession and beer garden will be open all-day and the fun continues on into the evening.
Starlight Stadium’s Canada Day event will conclude with a family-friendly movie played on a massive inflatable screen on the turf, so attendees can enjoy a movie under the stars.
Be sure to stay up to date with all of Langford’s Canada Day and 30th Anniversary events here.
