5 things not to miss in Burnaby this Halloween

Lots of spooktacular stuff is happening this month, and we’ve got 5 things not to miss in Burnaby!


1. Haunted Village

Everyone’s favourite Metro Vancouver heritage museum, the Burnaby Village Museum, is opening its doors at the end of October for a haunted jaunt down memory lane.

Families will have a close-up look at what life was like in the city long before we were born with the spooky flare of Halloween causing even more excitement. Children will also get to go trick-or-treating throughout the village and the spooked-up carousel will be open to all.

When: October 28-30, 2015, 6-9pm

Where: Burnaby Village Museum, 6501 Deer Lake Avenue

Tickets: Adults, youth & seniors: $14; children: $9

 2. Gravecouver Haunted House

Did you know Metropolis is haunted? Well, at least during the month of October when Gravecouver returns to scare the brand new pants off of shoppers and guests.
