Loft Christmas returns to Langley

Second year for family-friendly Christmas event in South Otter

Following a successful test run last season, A Loft Country Christmas has returned to the Loft Country children’s horse camp at 2640 248th St. in Aldergrove.

For four nights last year, visitors were treated to a live nativity scene portrayed by child actors, followed by horse rides on a live carousel inside the lit-up horse arena.

There were also rides on bumper cars, rides on a horse-drawn wagon with Santa Claus, and Wild West entertainment with dancers, gunslingers and piano players, and plenty of food in the Old West Town.

“Our [other] fairs are focused on family-friendly entertainment, so we wanted to bring that Christmas,” Loft Country owner-manager Trent Sulz said, describing the four-day event as a bid to “get the kinks out” and see if the event merited a repeat.

After averaging 300 people a night, the answer was a definite yes.

“We decided to do it again, only bigger,” Sulz said.

More days will be offered over a longer period at the South Otter location, running until Dec. 30 from Thursday to Sunday most weeks.

Everything from the first year will be returning, Sulz said, plus improvements that include a new buildings, a comedy shootout in the “Old West Town” added this year, and weather-proofing a prime kids’ attraction.

“We put a dome over our jumbo jumper,” Sulz said.

Adult admission is $24.73, seniors and children aged four to 12 pay $18.43 and children three and under get in free.

Loft Country has been operating for over a decade, starting as a summer camp for church kids.
