Fort Langley to host Aboriginal Day 2017

March 22, 2017 by  

British Columbia’s First Nation’s people have a proud and rich cultural tradition, and this will be showcased to the public during an upcoming free Fort Langley event.

The fort will be hosting a special Aboriginal Day, when members of the public are invited to come out and learn more about the first people to live in the area. The day will include crafting demonstrations and exhibits, as well as live performances of music, telling stories from the first people to call the area home, and an assortment of other activities. There will also be a chance to sample foods such as salmon cooked using traditional methods, bonfires and musket firings. Customized banners and other signage for an event like this can be supplied by a sign printing services provider.

The goal for the event is to showcase First Nation’s culture, and everyone is welcome to come out and learn while they have fun doing so. As part of Parks Canada’s 150th Canada’s 150th birthday celebration, there will be no admission charge to attend the day’s activities. Admission to the fort, and some other national historic sites across the country, will be free all year long.

The Fort Langley Aboriginal Day festivities will take place on Wednesday, June 21. Anyone who requires additional information has been asked to visit the event’s website or contact fort.langley@pc.gc.ca for further details.
