Vancouver’s Adult-Friendly Halloween Events! What A List!

By L. C. Chan

Halloween is the time of year where urban adults can dress up without feeling self conscious. They can preen and primp for a night on the town and scare their friends in the process.  Yes that’s right; Halloween is not only for the very young.
Older kids can play too.  They can dress up as a action hero from the latest Marvel Comic Com series, be ghoulish and grotesque, elegant or zaftig.
