Halloween! Bring It!

As you know Halloween is my favourite holiday that's not a holiday!

This Saturday my house will be full of costumes and happy people doing stupid things...more than 1 camera will be rolling so be careful.

So NO ONE can talk about Christmas until Halloween is over...please. It's bad enough that when I walk into Walmart, Costco or RRSS that I see decorations already and imagine wings sprouting on my money as flies away. I heard a Christmas carol the other day too UGH...

There's plenty to see and plenty to do for the next week if you into going to see Fright Night at Playland or the Pumpkin Patch, the Corn Maze, the Stanley Park Ghost Train and this!

Zombie Combat Zone & The Zombie Syndrome

The Zombie Combat Zone lets you hunt zombies after dark, in a live-action paintball game. Last year, the Zombie Combat Zone debuted in Surrey; it is now located at Semiahmoo Park, in White Rock. Must be booked in advance, and must be at least 16 to participate!
Zombie Combat Zone - Open Thursdays - Fridays only
The Zombie Syndrome: On Death Island returns for its second year to the streets of Vancouver. This interactive theatre experience lets the audience participate in a live-action, save-the-world zombie scenario, complete with live-action zombies.
The Zombie Syndrome: On Death Island - Tuesday, October 1 - Sunday, November 3, 2013
What a great way to fuel my fear!

 Parade of Lost Souls

For many years, the Parade of Lost Souls on Commercial Drive was theVancouver Halloween event: the procession / parade of ghouls and ghosts was the destination for people who took their Halloween seriously. But Public Dreams, the organizers of the Parade of Lost Souls, became overwhelmed by the size of the event and have, starting in 2010, scaled down the procession considerably. Now, in 2013, as part of a process of "handing over" the Parade (Public Dreams will not host the event next year), the event is being co-organized by its designated successor, the Dusty Flowerpot Cabaret.
The actual East Van location for the 2013 Parade will be revealed at 12am on October 26 on the Public Dreams website and will take place that night, from 6:30pm - 9:30pm.

For the Parade of Lost Souls I heard that there will be a Thriller Flash Mob at some point!
