We'll meet at La Casa Gelato/pink building Venables St/Glen Drive, at 6.45pm. Buy icecream if you wish, 00s of flavours!

Linzi and Mark will be the ones with bikes & dog trailer! Linzi will have a 'top hat' with lights. We'll be cycling from the seabus. There are 2 meetup groups amalgamating tonight so about 20 people.

It will be cold tonight so come prepared with witchy hats and gloves.

Parking is available in local streets but might be very popular so allow bit more time for this.

Vancouver’s annual Halloween parade in the Commercial Drive neighbourhood is back as the Parade of Lost Souls! It’s the only Halloween parade in Metro Vancouver and probably one of few across the country.

So as the night sky takes over, the procession will commence as attendees will walk the ghoulish streets of East Vancouver and take part in one of this city’s great cultural, grass roots celebrations, The Parade of Lost Souls.

Admission: Suggested $5 donation to event (not me). CASH ONLY

Other practical info ...

Donation volunteers will not be able to provide change at the entrance gate. If you require change, please feel free to donate at any of the three information booths. They’ll also have a group of roving donation ambassadors who will be on site for the duration of the event.

Payment options: all admissions/donations, merchandise sales and food vendors are CASH ONLY. There will be an ATM on site for your convenience.

Parking: Handicap parking will be available from 5:00-9:30pm near the walk route for vehicles displaying a valid handicap placard (exact location of handicap parking will be revealed on our website on October 26). There will be NO PARKING at the event site or in the surrounding neighbourhood. They will be closing several streets and parking enforcement will be monitoring the area. Save yourself the hassle and walk, transit or cycle to the park. Bike racks will be provided.

Food: There will be food vendors on site (cash only).

Park bylaws ban smoking and alcohol within the park. You may be subject to search by Vancouver Police.

    I think it would be fun to dress up! If it's raining, perhaps a snowman/ snowwoman costume would help to keep you dry. Taking the Skytrain to Commerical- Broadway would be the easiset way of getting there. There's a Blenz Coffee shop on the North East corner. Perhaps we could meet there?

    Dressing up: Someone else mentioned this to me. I think it's up to you if you want or not. No obligation but you can get into the fun of it all if you do. Last year it rained very heavy and I cycled there with rain proof clothes yet I wore a witches hat to at least feel a bit dressed up.

    We went last year in the pouring rain and it still remains one of my most favourite events in Vancouver. We cycled, there's bike racks or wheel them around with you.
