The Canada Day Celebrations in Langley will be held over a four-day span, from June 28 to July 1.

The first two days will be the sports fest, and the traditional celebrations will be on June 30 and July 1. Main stage entertainment, marketplace, ethnic food, vendors, international pavilions, children’s’ entertainment, Kidz Have Talent and much, much more will be the part of this year’s attractions.

The Langley International Festival Society that is hosting the event is putting a call out for volunteers, and the volunteers with special skills such as certified traffic control, photography, and first aid. If you would like to be involved as a food vendor, in the marketplace, obtain a booth or to be a sponsor this is the time to log on to the website and join in this growing community event at www.internationalfestival.ca.

The focus is on families and children and cultural sharing. As a volunteer, you will meet new people, learn about different cultures, and receive an appreciation certificate. Volunteers will also receive a t-shirt, water and refreshments and will be entered in a draw for a flat screen TV donated by The Great Canadian Superstore. To register as a volunteer, please visit www.internationalfestival.ca or e-mail volunteers@interationalfestival.ca, or call 604-782-0740.

The venue has changed this year from McLeod Park to Willoughby Community Park just outside the Langley Events Centre, at 200 Street and 80 Avenue, to accommodate the special events that will be occurring.

The four day long weekend events will be as follows: Saturday and Sunday (June 28 & 29) – International Sportsfest Tournaments; Monday (June 30) – International Festival; Tuesday (July 1) – Canada Day Fun and Festive Celebrations.
