It’s getting spooky out there and the Vancouver Park Board is celebrating Halloween this year at both VanDusen Botanical Garden and Stanley Park.

The Park Board’s long-running Stanley Park Ghost Train operates October 11 to 31. Prepare to be thrilled and chilled by aliens from outer space.

Each year the Stanley Park Ghost Train takes our riders on a journey through a mystical and magical world, inspired by Hallowe’en and other spooky tales. This family event is open to all ages and offers a glimpse of the goblins and ghoulish characters inhabiting the stories, legends and folklore of Halloween and Harvest celebrations.

At VanDusen Garden, the third annual VanDusen Glow in the Garden celebrates the classic tale of Hänsel and Gretel from October 19 to 31, 4:30pm to 9:00pm.

Follow the bread crumbs on a wondrous walk with zany lights and sounds, and illuminated pumpkin caricatures.

Purchase tickets for both attractions online in advance to skip the line. Tickets are also available for purchase at the gate on event nights, space permitting.
