What To Do This Fall 2016
Sep 27th, 2016
When the weather gets a little cooler, your natural inclination may be to hibernate in the comfort of your own home, sipping on something warm, curled up with games, a book, or a film. But with so much happening in the community this autumn, you would miss some great moments to make memories with your friends and family. Throw on a sweater (and maybe a rain coat) and check out some of these fantastic events throughout Metro Vancouver.
The largest and longest running night market in North America continues on weekends until October 10th. This year, the market features a Magical Dino Park, along with its selection of colourful vendors and entertainment.
Meaning “row of lighted lamps,” the 12th annual festival celebrates Indian culture this October and November. Take a look at the events calendar to discover the beautiful culture through stories, dance, and music.
The City of Surrey organizes guided nature walks throughout its urban forests. Learn about the wildlife and beauty of the great outdoors in Crescent Park, Elgin Heritage Park, Redwood Park, Bear Creek Park, and Green Timbers Park. There are even programs tailored specifically for kids.
Get in the spirit of harvest time with an introduction to the craft of scarecrows. Art’s Nursery in Surrey has a display of over 60 scarecrows, plus a DIY Build-A-Crow station. You can also take a hay ride or pick up a pumpkin.
Celebrate Oktoberfest at Harrison Hot Springs this year at the Harrison Beer Festival on October 28th and 29th. Less than an hour and a half from Surrey, this weekend getaway is the easiest route out of town. Taste beer from over 20 craft breweries, dance traditional polkas, and spend the night away from home.
