Ultimate Guide to Halloween in Metro VancouverPresented by Mark’s

Calling all ghouls & goblins, it is time to celebrate Halloween! Communities across Metro Vancouver are hosting dozens of family-friendly pumpkin-filled events. Don’t miss out! All this fun wraps up on October 31st. By the way, what are you wearing this Halloween? Our family is dressing up our dachshund-cross as a hot dog & we are all going as condiments! Somehow I ended up as mayonnaise…because what woman doesn’t want to wear a shapeless, wide-hipped white dress? Fortunately, we will be able to find great Fall fashions for mom & dad from Mark’s. Have a look, at the bottom of our event guide, for a few of our top picks of warm & stylish Fall wear for parents from Mark’s.

Your Halloween celebrations must start with finding the perfect pumpkin! Have you checked out our Ultimate Guide to Pumpkin Patches & Corn Mazes?

The list of Halloween events is massive…we’ve found more than 100 events to entertain you & your family! To help you find the events closest to you, click on the city-name below and you will be taken to that section of the list. Happy Haunting!
