Calling all ghouls & goblins, it is time to celebrate Halloween 2020! We all know Halloween 2020 is going to be like nothing we’ve ever experienced before. We applaud venues and communities who have created unique way to celebrate this fun holiday all while remaining COVID-compliant.

I know our family is building a candy-shoot. Our front door is convenient located 6 steps up from the sidewalk. With a piece of PVC pipe we will be able to stand on our porch and send candy down the slide to the trick-or-treaters below. Great way to keep our 6ft distance!

Communities across Metro Vancouver are hosting dozens of family-friendly pumpkin-filled events. Traditionally the list of Halloween events is massive…for 2020 we expect more events to be announced as we work our way through October! If we’ve missed an event you know about please send an email to vancouver@familyfuncanada.com and will update our list faster than a ghost can say “boo”.

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