      Vancouver’s Halloween SkyTrain party is back for its 11th edition this Friday (October 27), where locals are invited to hop on the city’s primary transit artery to revel from one stop to another.

      Organized by the Vancouver Public Space Network, a volunteer-driven collective that advocates for public spaces around town, the movable fete will feature tunes from a live DJ—DJ Rocky Fi$her, to be exact—and hundreds of Vancouverites dressed in their wildest, wackiest, and quirkiest costumes.

      Past events—the party has taken place annually since 2006, with the exception of last year—have happened on the Canada Line, though coordinators are remaining tight-lipped about 2017’s starting location and route. (RSVP to the function’s Facebook page to stay updated.)

      Besides transit fare, the SkyTrain bash is free. There are, however, a few ground rules: no smoking, be respectful of others, and welcome guests—unsuspecting or otherwise—who enter the train with open arms. And be sure to give thanks to transit staff you may encounter for their hard work.

      The Halloween SkyTrain Party takes place on Friday (October 27) from 8 to 9:30 p.m. RSVP to the event’s Facebook page to stay updated on the yet-to-be-announced starting location.
