Metro Vancouver is truly spectacular in the Fall! The leaves have changed, the air is crisp, and there is still a nice balance of sun and rain as we transition into the darker months ahead. Pumpkin spice everything is in full swing, and (most of us) have settled into the routines of another school year. This year, many events are back from a two-year hiatus with cautious optimism and remaining safety precautions. Whether you’re hoping to get out for some Fall festivities or ready to dive into the spooky season, there are dozens of events happening across the Lower Mainland.
