What's happening in Vancouver? History and ghost lore haunted Vancouver trolley tours are back

Ladies and ghouls it’s time to hop on a historical Halloween tour and immerse yourselves in Vancouver’s murderous history and local ghost lore.

From October 16 – 31, Vancouver Trolley Company and the Vancouver Police Museum hosts the Haunted Vancouver Trolley Tours, a two and a half hour journey through Vancouver’s prim and proper houses by day and rumored ghost hangouts by night.  
Lovers of ghostly abodes, cemetery enthusiasts and murder history buffs are all welcome on the Vancouver Haunted Trolley tours. Leaving from Canada Place four times nightly from Tuesday – Saturday, the tour whisks you away to hear stories like the Castelanni milkshake murder and the Fairmont Vancouver’s infamous ‘Lady in Red.’

The trolley trundles through a variety of Vancouver hoods, including an obligatory drive past Mountain View cemetery and through Stanley Park to hear stories of lives lived and lives lost. The trolley ride winds up at the Vancouver Police Museumwhich happens to be housed in the city’s first morgue and forensics lab.

Can you say CSI Vancouver? At the police museum you will learn about the 15,000-plus autopsies performed at the city’s original morgue (located in the basement) including that of handsome Aussie-come-American actor Errol Flynn.

Due to the mature subject matter of the tours they are only open to folks aged 13+. Reservations on the tour are recommended as they often sell out.  For more info visit the Vancouver Trolley Company website at  http://www.vancouvertrolley.com/tours/seasonal/haunted-halloween
