Langford Days celebrates milestone Saturday

This Saturday, July 21, marks the 10th anniversary of Langford Days, which is now sponsored by Westhills.

It’s time again for the annual party that is Langford Days.

This Saturday, July 21, marks the 10th anniversary of Langford Days, which is now sponsored by Westhills.

The day begins with a pancake breakfast, from 8 to 10 a.m., at the West Shore RCMP detachment. All money raised from the breakfast will go towards Tour de Rock.

One of the highlights is the parade, which begins at 10 a.m. from City Centre Park on Langford Parkway. The parade travels along Jacklin Road, Goldstream Avenue and Veteran’s Memorial Parkway before finishing on Station Avenue.

City Centre Park is hosting a slew of festivities for the whole family from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Exhibits include a blacksmith and an ice carver, as well as other family oriented entertainment. A free children’s train will run in the parking lot, and a Segway track will be set up for anyone who wants to give the personal transports a try, also for free.

All of the park’s usual attractions will be open. Regular admission rates apply.

In conjunction with Langford Days, a children’s fishing derby is planned. Any freshwater fish caught in the region that day can be brought down to City Centre Park for an official weigh-in by 4 p.m.

“They can be caught in any lake,” said Gerry St. Cyr, facility operator at city centre.
