Tree lights up holiday season in Langley

Denise Need dances with daughter Piper during a Christmas song at the Langley Tree Lighting on Saturday, Nov. 30 at Langley Park. They were joined by other dancing children, including Rose Hess, far left, Elleanor Hamblen, Vivian Hamblen, and about 100 other merrymakers. The Langley Chamber of Commerce event included holiday and Christmas music led by four performers, a short recital from the upcoming “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown” play at WICA and a visit from Santa and his alpaca-deers — alpacas with faux felt antlers — named Kaiser and Silverado. Langley’s holiday tree at the park on Second Street and Anthes Avenue is lit with soft blue lights. Other events are scheduled, including a holiday parade through downtown Langley on Saturday, Dec. 7.  - Ben Watanabe / The Record
