Held on Saturday July 17, it was the first outdoor concert since Langley City approved limited alcohol consumption at McBurney and two other designated locations for two days a week, and there have been no incidents James said.
âAbsolutely nothing went wrong,â James told The Langley Advance Times.
James estimated attendance to be between 200 and 300, and with people coming and going during the two-hour event, there were no complaints about social distancing.
For the family event, the DLBA lent seat cushions to make sitting on the non-slip steps more comfortable.
Vancouver-based singer-songwriter and artist who has performed professionally for over a decade, Capper has performed in genres as diverse as jazz, country, musical theater and folk.
His performance was part of the Pick up the picnics promoted by the Downtown Langley Business Association (DLBA), where, for a limited time only, participating downtown Langley restaurants are offering special picnics for downtown alfresco dining.
The menus of 14 restaurants can be viewed and ordered via the centrevillelangley.com website.
Meals will be provided in a Downtown Langley Business Association reusable bag, along with a DLBA picnic package, and for each package distributed, Financial envision, a division of First West Credit Union, will donate $ 5 to The Full Cupboard to benefit Langley Sources Food Bank.
This donation will be matched by the Downtown Langley Business Association.
