With the cancellation of the 2009 Vancouver parade of lost souls still fresh in our memory, we are now forced to look at other alternatives to get our Halloween fix. This brings us to the Stanley Park Hallowe’en ghost train.
Zombies. Voodoo gods. Wild Women of the Woods. Three-headed dogs. Mexican witches’ brew. All these and more are in store for those who dare to climb aboard this year’s Stanley Park Hallowe’en Ghost Train.
Just ask Georgie—if you get a chance. In the latest Ghost Train adventure, Georgie is on the run, dodging and ducking an international group of ghouls and ghosties that inhabit the underworld.
Will the mischievous child outrun the Wild Woman of the Woods, outwit the voodoo god Obatal, outsmart the Goddess of Death Kali? And can Georgie stay one step ahead of the man with the child-sized sack, Gentleman Jack?
This is one Halloween event that is fun for the whole family and is very affordable. Tomorrow I’ll check in with the haunted trolley tours, I’m hearing that may be canceled this year as well. If that is true what in the holy hell is going on in Vancouver this year for Halloween. On a side note my tells me she has yet to hear any firecrackers in her East Van neighbourhood.
