Langley families invited to enjoy spring break at the fort

December 29, 2016 by  

This spring break, Langley students are invited to enjoy a selection of activities at Fort Langley that will give them a chance to have some fun while learning about the nation’s past.

The historic site will be open each day from 11:00 am until 3:00 pm, and it will be offering kid-friendly activities that are designed to help children learn about what life was like in pioneer times. Visitors can spend time with the farm animals, watch demonstrations of the blacksmith and barrel maker at work, or try their hand at shooting a reproduction musket.

Each child who wishes to have one will receive an Xplorers book, and will be given a reward once it has been completed. A booklet printing service will be able to supply both the booklet and the prize, and will be able to customize them in any way that the organizers of the event desire.

As part of the Canada 150 celebrations, there will be no admission fee being charged to enter the site. A small charge will be applied for those who would like to try firing the musket.

Fort Langley’s slate of spring break activities will be held from March 11 until 26, and will run from 10:30 until 3:30 each day, and parents are asked to accompany their children.
