May Day Parade, Fort Langley, May 2016
VanderKooi Friesians pull a 1902 Victoria carriage through Fort Langley at Monday’s May Day Parade.
The carriage is from the collection on exhibit at the BC Farm Museum and was carrying Bill and Bernice Stacey. The Stacey’s are long time Farm Museum volunteers.
They could easily have been mistaken for genuine turn of the century dignitaries.
PIONEER WAGON IN FORT LANGLEY
An authentic covered wagon from pioneer days is alive and well in Fort Langley! As you approach the Birthplace of BC your attention is attracted to the covered wagon in the pasture. The wagon promotes the pioneer life collection on exhibit at the BC Farm Museum. If the wagon could speak the stories would be fascinating!
One story it would definitely tell would be about the afternoon the then Premier of BC and some dignitaries rode in the covered wagon pulled by a team of horses to be the first vehicle to drive through the George Massey Tunnel. Maybe we can recreate that event when the new bridge opens. . . this time pulled by a tractor?
We kicked off the year once again with our opening on April 15th and then followed by a large entry in the very popular May Day Parade in Fort Langley.
