July 1st, 2020 is just a day away and the Langley Centennial Museum and the Township of Langley are launching their first ever Virtual Canada Day Celebration. With all the history that surrounds us during this world pandemic, the local community museum has stepped to the forefront in the delivery of online programs and virtual exhibits.
Museums are traditionally mandated to preserve local history and have never looked to create stories of their own, but during this time of Covid-19 pandemic and the need to maintain social distancing, the party on King Street in Fort Langley has been shelved for one year and has been replaced with a Virtual and Online Version of the party.
The Township of Langley invites you to participate in local history and attend its first ever online virtual celebration ever. The entertainment and the numerous participatory activities are great. Kudo’s to the planners. Juno Award winner Jim Byrnes is leading the line-up that includes other talented Artists. JD Miner, Norine Braun, Zulu Panda, Blackthorn Celtic Folk, Langley Ukulele Ensemble, Kunda African Culture and Dance, Norden the Magician, Chinese Cultural Dance performers, VanCity Dance – Punjabi Dance at the Cat Murphy Band will all participate in this Historic Event.
On the Activity Side of this virtual event the participants are “Circus Lab”, “The SuperFun Stilt Family”,”Penny Pom-Pom”, “Mrs Picasso”, “Mike Battie – Comedy”, “The Langley Arts Council” and many more. There will be online craft and art lessons.
