FILE Canada Day at Aldergrove Legion

Canada Day party for all ages at Aldergrove

Aldergrove Legion is one of the communities in Langley Township hosting free family fun on July 1

On Saturday, July 1, the Aldergrove Legion at 26607 Fraser Highway invites the public to celebrate Canada Day in the Legion parkland from noon until 4 p.m.

Activities will include old-fashioned “sports day” fun. This includes a water balloon toss, three-legged races, sack races, wheelbarrow races, an obstacle course, and prizes and treat packages for participants.

A bouncy castle, dunk tank, balloon artist, magician, face painting, hot dogs, hamburgers, and cake will also be available.

Following the family festivities, adults are invited to join the Legion in the lounge for dancing and live entertainment.

There are no admission fees for any of these activities and everyone is welcome to join in.

GRANTS HELP COMMUNITIES CELEBRATE CANADA 150

Canada is celebrating its 150th birthday and in honour of the occasion, special events will be held all weekend long throughout the Township of Langley.

On Saturday, July 1, the nation’s sesquicentennial will be marked during the Township’s annual Canada Day celebrations at Willoughby Community Park and the Langley Centennial Museum in Fort Langley. Visit tol.ca/canadaday for details.

To help other communities celebrate our country’s special milestone, the Township made Canada 150 Community Celebration Grants of $1,000 available to local organizations and service clubs wanting to host free, family-oriented parties and gatherings. These three communities are:
