I was lucky enough to spend Halloween 2010 in Vancouver whilst visiting a friend, and its true, they really do go all out for this spooky holiday! I remember walking through the city with Michaela and her friends all dressed up, and i noticed that nearly every single person we passed were in costume. Not just the standard witches and zombies, but everything from morph costumes to celebrities and characters from big movies! it was a far cry from the standard non effort us brits put into Halloween. Everyone was so nice and friendly! There was so much choice with different parties to go to and everywhere was packed full of happy party people!
So if you’re looking for advice on places to visit packed full of fun and enthusiasm, Vancouver is definitely on my must do list!
