What’s On for a Family Fun Halloween in Vancouver

What's On for Halloween in Vancouver - SavvyMom

The spooky season has arrived and the ghosts, ghouls, and gourds (aka pumpkins) are already out in force. There’s plenty of fun for Halloween in Vancouver and the surrounding region this year, with a return of many past favourites after a hiatus for the last few seasons. From Fright Night at the PNE to the ghosts of historical sites, there’s plenty to see and do (and yummy snacks along the way, too) all October long. Here’s a few of our favourites for Halloween in Vancouver this year:

What’s On for Halloween in Vancouver

Petey’s Pumpkin Patch

When: Until Tuesday October 31st
Where: Chilliwack
Website: https://www.peteyspumpkinpatch.ca/

There’s a mini maze, as well. Family passes for two adults and two kids are available, or entry per person. Petey’s is one of the most popular pumpkin patches in the Valley region.
