Local farmers bring their goods to the Trout Lake (John Hendry Park) every Saturday from 09:00 to 14:00 during the summer. Grab your camera and come see what they have to offer. Take the Skytrain to Commercial/Broadway Station and walk to the park.
The Vancouver Halloween Parade is free to attend and a fun kickoff to the Halloween season. The parade starts on Drake and Howe, runs up Howe to Smithe, and returns along Granville Street. Themes include cosplay, anime, and traditional Halloween characters.
This family friendly street festival is a great chance to check out Burnaby Heights, sample some great food, and take part in some fun activities. Catch bus 95 from downtown Vancouver and get off at Kootenay Loop or Gilmore.
