Pumpkins and Witches and iPads OH MY!

Strap on your Yoda ears and listen up because Halloween is less than a week away and YVR is gearing up for our annual Halloween Pumpkin Carving and Costume Contest! On Monday, October 31at the Haida Gwaii, The Spirit of the Jade Canoe in the International Terminal, Departures Levels 3 we’ll be hosting this extremely competitive and fun event.

Drop off your carved pumpkin between 10:30 a.m. and noon at the Haida Gwaii, and then come back for judging between 12:15 and 12:30 p.m. But don’t think two triangles and some fangs on a pumpkin will win you the 1st place prize of an iPad 2: last year’s contest saw some spooktacularly amazing competition.

If scraping out pumpkins isn’t exactly your thing, this year we will also host a costume contest. Everyone is invited to show up with their costume on – anything goes, just make it creative! Registration takes place between 12:30 and 12:45 p.m. and judging will happen between 12:45 and 1:00 p.m.

If you’re not participating in the contests, we still invite you to come out between 12:15 and 1:00 p.m. to partake in the fun and enjoy lunch specials happening at the food court.

Prizes for both the Pumpkin Carving & Costume Contest are:

1st Place: iPad 2
2nd Place: $200 YVR bucks
3rd Place: $100 YVR bucks
