A chance to dance with a legend

Langley City Summer Series presented tributes to famous performers

It was a chance to dance with a legend, and a number of visitors did, during the free Legends show at McBurney Plaza in Langley City on Saturday.

The event featured tributes to Elvis, George Michael, Abba, and Tina Turner.

Every hour, a different impersonator took the stage.

People filled the plaza at 20518 Fraser Hwy. to sing along and dance with their favourite acts, who stayed around after performing to pose for pictures with delighted fans.

There was popcorn and face-painting as well.

It was the fifth year of the Summer Series at McBurney Plaza, which aims to draw people into the City core.

This year, based on feedback from attendees, events were running longer.
