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.
