Summer in the City – Aug. 9 to Aug. 16

Dive-in movies, Irish fiddles, and an afternoon of magic

There are a lot more live performances and get togethers in Langley City this summer – here’s what people will find happening this week, Aug. 6 to Aug. 16.

Dancing in the Park welcomes movers and shakers to Douglas Park, Friday, Aug. 9 for an evening of couple’s lessons from 7 – 9 p.m. Taught by local instructors from Dancing for Dessert, anyone is welcome to hop up on the Spirit Square stage and give some lessons a try.

There will be artisan crafts for sale, live entertainment, a barbecue, and “Try on a Disability” exercises so people can gain insight into other’s lives.

Magic in the Plaza promises to amaze as a line up of award winning magicians take over McBurney Plaza on Aug. 10 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Paul Romhany (as Charlie Chaplin), Jason Verners, Paul Romhany, and Travis Bernhardt will perform all afternoon in four free 45 minute shows. Balloon twisting, cotton candy, and other mystical activities are planned for all ages.

Dive-In Movie is not a spelling mistake. Don’t park your car in the pool, this wet and wild night takes place at Al Anderson Memorial Pool on Aug. 10. Swimmers can dive in at 6 p.m. to watch a pool-side screening of the 1975 blockbuster classic Jaws. The film will start at dusk.
