Parking was at a premium in and around downtown Fort Langley, as the Village paused for a day to celebrate a popular seasonal berry.
Vehicles parked as far back as Belmont Golf Course, as the downtown section Fort Langley was closed for the 22nd annual Cranberry Festival, which attracted thousands of people.
With downtown traffic closed off, and parking very difficult to be had, free shuttle service was offered from Trinity Western University and Walnut Grove Secondary.
The festival, marking its 22nd year, has become a Thanksgiving tradition where vendors and food trucks fill Glover Road.
The grounds of the Fort Langley Community Hall is where locally produced Ocean Spray cranberries were scooped up, bagged, and sold, and a stage was set up directly in front of the hall, where music and dancing entertained visitors.
The Fort Langley National Historic Site also celebrated the festival. Inside the fort walls, people experienced the popular cranberry stomp or played cranberry and farm related games. There was complimentary admission for Canada’s 150th.
