The Friday concert was the second one of the series, with two more coming – one on July 30 and the other on Aug. 6.

James said with multiple live music events happening all around Langley, she was happy to see people stopping by McBurney to enjoy live music.

In addition to the free two-hour live entertainment, people can also enjoy free popcorn at the site. Coming back with the annual event for the first time post-pandemic, her team has been getting “several” inquiries daily on social media, she added.
