Halloween in Vancouver: Suggestions from Team Kerr

  • As you browse the Commercial Drive real estate listings this fall and start to plan a trip to Vancouver to explore different homes that Team Kerr has on the market, don’t forget to set aside some time for one of the city’s most fun holidays.  Fall in Vancouver is a beautiful time of year made that much more enjoyable by the fun and unique festivities that surround Halloween.  Here are three of our favorites and, if you are looking for more suggestions, just ask your downtown Vancouver realtor when you are in town searching for your dream home.

    Take a Ride on the Stanley Park Ghost Train

    There are many frightening activities around Vancouver during Halloween, but the Stanley Park Ghost Train provides a fun and only semi-freaky alternative for the whole family.  The theme of this year’s train ride is an alien invasion – complete with lights, sounds, and lives performers.  Stop by the Stanley Park Plaza for even more festivities including a haunted maze, pumpkin patch, arts and crafts, and presentations from the Stanley Park Ecology Society.  This is favorite Halloween stop for many of the Team Kerr families and is an easy addition to any fall visit to Vancouver.

    Glow in the Garden: A VanDusen Botanical Garden Halloween

    The VanDusen Botanical Garden is a wonderful place to visit any time of year, but it becomes especially magical toward the end of October.  After you visit some of your top choice Commercial Drive real estate listings, stop by to see what the botanical gardens have in store.  This is another family friendly event that draws in countless visitors to take in the spooky sights and sounds while marveling at some of the best-carved jack-o-lanterns you will ever lay eyes on.   You can find more information on the events and festivities on the VanDusen website below.


    An Adult Only Adventure at the Aquarium

    Ask your downtown Vancouver realtor what their favorite Vancouver Halloween event is, and many will mention the after hours celebration at the Vancouver Aquarium.  This event, reserved for those 19 years or older, provides the perfect opportunity to learn about the spooky creatures of the deep, marvel at the exhibits and animals that call the aquarium home, and socialize with other like-minded adults.  A full breakdown of activities can be found online at http://www.vanaqua.org/experience/events/annual-and-upcoming-events/after-hours.

    Browsing through the Commercial Drive real estate listings and looking for a new home in Vancouver can be tedious.  But it doesn’t have to be! This October, schedule some time for yourself to enjoy this new city you plan to call home.  The above suggestions are just three Team Kerr favorites, as the whole city seems to come alive around this spooky holiday.  Find an adventure on your own or check this events calendar for even more ways to celebrate autumn and the Halloween spirit.
