Canada Day to feature drone show in lieu of fireworks in Langley Township

March 25, 2024

Langley Township will host its first drone light show for Canada Day this year, instead of the fireworks displays that used to cap the annual celebration.

On Monday, March 11, council voted to fund a $30,000 light show featuring programmed drones at the Canada Day party at the Langley Events Centre.

“I’m kind of curious to give it a try, and we’ll revisit it again next year,” said Mayor Eric Woodward.

Most of the council was enthusiastic about trying the drone show.

Langley Township used to hold Canada Day fireworks displays, when the annual event was hosted by a volunteer-run group at the Langley Regional Airport.

Fireworks continued for a few years after the event was moved to McLeod Athletic Park as the airport expanded.
