    There’s so much to experience in Vancouver in fall. We’ve picked five fun events you shouldn’t miss.

    Summer may be on its way out but there’s still a lot to do in Vancouver in fall. Besides enjoying the beautiful autumnal colours and the host of Halloween events, be sure to check out some of these events and activities across the Lower Mainland.

    The Sky’s No Limit Event

    On October 5-6, visit Abbotsford International Airport for an aerospace and aviation industry event. Aiming to improve gender diversity in high tech STEM fields, activities include meeting a NASA astronaut and going up in a small aircraft (for female first-time fliers). Admission is free and all are welcome.

    Vancouver International Film Festival

    Vancouver International Film Festival (VIFF) is back in town! Kicking off on September 26, this annual festival is a great way to check out some thought-provoking films from all across the globe. With more than 300 films from over 70 countries presented, the hardest part is selecting what to see! Check out the program details at viff.org
