When you think of Halloween, you think of a good time. On November 1st, the revived Waldorf Hotel will be serving as the setting for the first ever Mad Decent Halloween from Diplo’s record label, Mad Decent.
Headliners include Paul Devro, Party Favor, Walshy Fire of Major Lazer and cult of personality favorite, Riff Raff. Performances will be on both floors of the Waldorf Hotel, each with their own custom-designed space for you to enjoy. Expect less ‘scarecrows and cobwebs’ and more state-of-the-art, 3D-mapped visuals, twerking, and a VIP after party upstairs in the hotel. So, if you’re in for a less gimmicky Halloween where the focus is on great visuals and music to get you amped, then you’re in luck because we’re giving away tickets to this event.
Do you secretly dress in a cape or don spandex to appease your superhero alter ego? If you muttered, ‘Yes, how did you know?’ Then fly, teleport or walk to the 2nd Annual Renaissance Vancouver Harbourside Hotel Superheroes Ball October 24.
Just like superheros they admire, fans often like coming to the rescue of those who need it most: enter the 2nd Annual Superhero Ball.

Last year the sold-out event raised $15,000 for the hospital. This year organizers have raised the stakes and set the fundraising goal at $18,000. Continue reading:
Capes and Spandex the dress code at 2nd Annual Superhero Ball
Thanks Rachael for guest posting on my behalf for the last few weeks… Back in town in time for another round of awesome things to do in Vancouver this weekend Friday to Sunday!
Halloween is starting a few weeks early this year in Vancouver with the inaugural Halloween Parade and Expo taking place on October 18th and 19th, 2014.
Ever wanted to be someone else? Cosplay (costume play) allows just that — giving you the freedom to dress up as your favourite movie, video game or anime character. The Halloween Expo and Parade focuses heavily on cosplay, along with offering a convention for fandom, films, comics, anime, game, makeup, arts and performances. It also concludes with a free parade on Sunday with costumed characters and Vancouver residents taking part in the festivities.
