Langley Good Times Cruise-In: Welcome to Western Canada’s largest charity car show

Things people should know before heading out to Saturday’s event in Aldergrove

FROM THE PRESIDENT: Support is imperative

My name is Wayne Patterson, and I am the 2019 president of the Langley Good Times Cruise-In, and I want to welcome you all to the 2019 Langley Good Times Cruise-In.

The Langley Good Times Cruise-In has been working hard to put together the 2019 show. Last year we changed the show to be only on Fraser Highway, and the feedback was great.

Everyone loved the new show layout along Fraser Highway, from 264th to 272nd Street, along with some small side streets. We’re sticking to that, plus this year we are moving more of our marketplace onto the middle of Fraser Highway.

The Township of Langley has been a great supporter of the Cruise-In. Every time we ask for a hand, they are there to support and guide us.

Aldergrove, and the Aldergrove community has a great opportunity to showcase all the new features, and stores on Fraser Highway, which is going to look amazing!

In-N-Out Burger will be located at Re/Max Aldercenter Realty at 26641 Fraser Hwy, and as well, there will be entertainment throughout the car show.

This year’s charities will be Langley Community Support Groups Society and Valley Therapeutic Equestrian Association.

I would also like to thank the sponsors for their generosity, which allows us to put on this spectacular show.

Thank you so much for your support.

The windshield looking forward is bigger than the rearview mirror looking back.”

– Wayne Patterson, Langley Good Times Cruise-In president
