Grandview Park, 1200 Commercial Drive, Saturday evening preceeding Halloween
Honour the dead, wake the living and chase away bad luck.
Hallowe’en, the Day of the Dead and All Saints Day are traditional celebrations in many cultures. For some cultures, this celebration marks the end of the year. The Parade of the Lost Souls is an attempt to regain some of the significance of these seasonal celebrations. A colorful torch-lit procession makes its way through neighbourhood streets and alleys. Spectral brides dance under the street lights. The spirits awake and and everyone takes part in a grand finale featuring torch choreography and fireworks.
During October, there are lantern workshops at Britannia Community Centre. Call the Public Dreams office for information 604.879.8611, http://www.publicdreams.org/
