October Events in Metro Vancouver 2012

October 1st, 2012 @ 9:52am (PT) by Rebecca Bollwitt

The clouds arrived on cue as autumn hit last weekend in Vancouver. The air cooled, leaves began to drop, and flip flops have been traded in for boots. With Thanksgiving and Halloween this month, we have a long weekend and plenty of fun activities to look forward too, like Fall & Halloween Tours, Corn Mazes, or Battling Zombies.

Stanley Park Photowalk

  1. Steve v. says:

    Your monthly lists are the BEST! Seriously, we always consult your list before planning the week.
    The one oddity here is the flashmob – doesn’t that sort of spoil it!?
    The UBC Applefest would fit your list nicely, a great Fall event: http://www.botanicalgarden.ubc.ca/apple-festival

  2. Thanks Steve!

    Yeah, I was asked to include it but notice I didn’t put any details. I was just thinking those who wanted to be involved would click the link and inquire. Others would hopefully not click ;)
