The dash for Glass!

The Sea Float Scramble will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 4 at Langley’s Seawall Park off First Street in downtown Langley.

Glass artist Callahan McVay has created one-of-a-kind glass sea floats that will be hidden near Langley’s waterfront. People are invited to scramble for a glass treasure once the ribbon is dropped.  This event is free and welcome fun for all ages. You may go home with your own glass treasure. All sea floats will be hidden in plain sight, no digging necessary.
