2. Pumpkin Patches

Enjoy the open space, crisp fall weather, and pick out your very own pumpkin at local Pumpkin Patches! Although let’s be real, the real draw are those ‘like-worthy’ pictures.

These are just a few of the dozen in the Lower Mainland.

3. Have a Virtual Thanksgiving Dinner

Thanksgiving is far from normal this year, but that doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate with those nearest and dearest to you. Look on the bright side, it’s a lot easier to cook for just your ‘bubble’!

Stay safe, and have a happy and fun Thanksgiving Long weekend!!
