Since 1964, the miniature passenger train in Stanley Park has been tooting over trestles, through tunnels, and over bridges, taking passengers on a two-kilometer journey through the natural surroundings of Vancouver’s most famed park.

During the Halloween season, the landscape comes alive as the train is transformed into a Halloween-themed railway adventure. This year’s theme is “Day of the Dead”, a non-spooky, colourful celebration of All Hallows’ Eve. The delightful festival of life decorates the train tour, and the party doesn’t stop when the train returns to the station. Offering a range of attractions and activities in the surrounding area, Stanley Park’s Day of the Dead Halloween celebration is the perfect way to spend a cool Fall evening with family and friends.

Today’s the first real day that’s felt like fall to me. It’s crisp, bright, and the leaves on the trees range from red to orange to yellow to green. I’ve also started walking down the sidewalk in a zig-zag to make sure to step on the crunchiest of the fallen leaves! Fall is my favourite time in Vancouver, and this brief window of cool sunny days and beautiful colour doesn’t last long, so here are the five ways I’ll be enjoying it.
