Hundreds of people packed the parade route and lined Goldstream Avenue for the annual Westhills Parade on Saturday, Jul 21, with many heading off to City Centre Park for more family fun at the tenth annual Langford Day celebration.
A colour party from the Prince Edward branch of the Royal Canadian Legion led the parade, which featured more than 40 floats and about 300 participants representing numerous businesses, youth groups, emergency services, volunteer organizations and sports teams from throughout Langford and the West Shore.
Rohan Rupf, marketing director for Keycorp Marketing, said he was happy that the weather cooperated and contributed to the event's success. "We were very happy with the energy level and enthusiasm," Rupf said. "I really want to thank the organizers, sponsors, participants and volunteers for their efforts."
Langford Mayor Stew Young said he was impressed by the turnout and the enthusiasm in the participants and the people who cheered them on. "It's great to see free events like the parade and the Show and Shine last month enjoyed by so many people," Mayor Young said. "It shows the pride we share in our community, and it's part of what makes Langford so special."
City Centre Park operator Gerry St. Cyr said he was pleased with the turnout at the park for Langford Day. "The bouncy castle was a hit with the kids, and lots of families enjoyed the activities at the park," St. Cyr said. "It was a terrific way to celebrate the great community we live in."Go to Top
