PHOTOS: Starlight Stadium Packed as Langford Celebrates Canada Day
Langford’s Starlight Stadium was packed with patriotic revellers Saturday (July 1) as the city celebrated Canada Day.
With both the courtyard area and the field open, there was no shortage of room for activities. That proved to be a good thing though, since there were so many to choose from.
The courtyard featured live music, tasty treats, cedar weaving, craft vendors, a retro videogame arcade, face painting and more, while the field featured a gymnastics demonstration, a firefighter skills course for kids, ping pong, bean bag toss, and plenty of room for disc sports.
“It’s been absolutely fantastic,” said Langford Mayor Scott Goodmanson. “An hour and a half ago, I was told there have already been 10,000 people through. It’s been busy all day.”
The day started with a pancake breakfast, and it seems the theme of food never completely went away. Goodmanson said he had the pleasure of judging a pie competition, and 10 brave participants entered a hot wing eating contest, which saw the victor celebrate with both tears of joy and pain.
