Following another successful Second Street Dance in Langley on July 8, the Langley City Council approved an investment in next year’s event.

The council approved a $5,000 tourism promotion program application by the Second Street Dance subcommittee’s chairman, Callahan McVay, at its regular monthly meeting on July 17 at city hall. The event was organized by the Langley Arts Commission, Langley Main Street Association and the City of Langley.

The money will be distributed toward bands ($2,000), poster art ($500), permits ($500), t-shirts ($1,000) and advertising ($1,000).

McVay said the 2017 event was well attended and that restaurants were “slammed.” There were also people representing 201 different zip codes at the event, meaning a wide variety of people from different locations attended the street dance.

McVay considered the economic development the event brings to the city as one of the biggest highlights. McVay said the restaurants and coffee shops surrounding the street dance provide everything a large event needs, from food to a beer garden.

Next year’s street dance is set for July 9, 2018.
