Cranberry Crazy

The cranberry harvest is coming. Visit Fort Langley this Saturday where you can scoop them up by the pound at the 17th annual Cranberry Festival. More than 150 years ago, cranberries were tended in wild bogs by local aboriginal people and traded to the Hudson's Bay Company who sold berries by the barrel to miners in California to help ward of scurvy.
