This past summer I attended my first Burnaby Heights Hats off Day and I quickly found out why so many call it their favourite event of the year. For over a dozen city blocks along the north side of Burnaby, community organizations, neighbours, and businesses get together and host one fantastic festival. The Burnaby Heights community is coming together once again for Halloween on the Heights this month.
Here are just a few of the events you can find from October 29th to 31st on Hastings between Boundary and Gamma in Burnaby:
A hosted Halloween Dace at the Dance Addicts Studio (4622 Hastings) for ages 7 to 18. Stop in October 30th from 1:00pm to 4:00pm with dark clothing. Glowing touches will be added by the Dance Addicts crew. Participation is by donation to the BC Children’s Hospital.
Halloween Trains in the Dark
Ride the miniature railway in Confederation Park on October 29th and 30th from 6:00pm to 9:00pm.
Trick or Treating
Local merchants will be handing out candy to costumed little ones on October 31st then families can make their way to Gilmore Community School for a fireworks display around 8:00pm.
All event are billed as “spooky but not too spooky” and are appropriate for children and families.
