International Fest declared a success

Organizers estimate 10,000 people attended cultural festival held over two days last weekend

Organizers of the 15th annual Langley International Fest estimate 10,000 people attended the two-day event at Willoughby Community Park on Saturday, Aug. 22, and Sunday, Aug. 23.

“We had two beautiful days,” said Tomás Reyes, the president of the Langley’s International Festival Society.

“I am pleased with the outcome.”

Around 200 dancers and musicians from all cultures performed both days.

For children, there were various activities including face painting, balloon magic, multicultural crafts, giveaways, bouncy castles, and pony rides.

In addition to the international marketplace and multicultural foods, the event added a gallery of the Seven Wonders of the World featuring selfie-ready floor-to-ceiling images of famous locations like the  Roman colosseum, Great Wall of China and Taj Mahal.

The society issued a statement thanking the media, sponsors, vendors, community organizations and volunteers, for making this year’s event “such a big success.”
