It’s finally October! So we can finally get into the Halloween spirit without any shame. And lucky for us, there is no shortage of fun activities in the city to do before the end of the month.
Celebrate the spookiest of months with these festive activities this October!
1. Visit a pumpkin patch
A wholesome day-trip to one of the city’s many beautiful pumpkin patches is a must-do in October. Take a ride on a wagon through the forest, snack on some kettle corn, and find the perfect pumpkin for your jack-o’-lantern.
2. Take a weekend road trip to a gorgeous cabin in the woods
Spend some cozy nights in one of these picturesque vacation rentals. Bundle up and savour the chilly fall weather tucked into a treehouse or beach bungalow.
3. Get absolutely scared out of your wits at one of the freakiest corn mazes in the country
There are tons of corn mazes in the Lower Mainland to adventure to, but if you’re really down to get jump-scared or even *taken from your group*, then you should try the Pitch Black Hands On maze at Maan Farms. Don’t know if we could handle this one honestly…
4. Enjoy some festive drinks at a local brewery
Vancouver has tons of awesome breweries, but have you gotten your hands on any festive, fall-flavoured seasonal beers yet? These awesome craft breweries have got everything from a Chocolate Pumpkin porter to a Tart Wild Ale with Blackberries. Yum…
5. Pick some fresh apples for all your fall baking needs
There’s something about baking with apples that you’ve picked yourself that just hits different. At this beautiful farm, you can pick all the tastiest apples in season to bring home with you.
6. Channel your inner kid at this wizard-themed pop-up bar
Who doesn’t love a little bit of a challenge? At this awesome pop-up bar, you and your friends have to solve some riddles to gather your “potion” (really just cocktail) ingredients, before indulging in a tasty drink. It’s like a Harry Potter themed party, but with drinking.
7. Attend a spooky themed concert by candlelight
The perfect date night out before Halloween, grab some tickets for a haunted evening of classical festive tunes. Get immersed into a glowing atmosphere of flickering candles while listening to this totally spooky concert by Candlelight.
