Vancouver’s Mountain View Cemetery held its 13th annual Night for All Souls last Saturday, October 28th 2017.
The highlight in a week of events honouring the dead, this year’s “Night” was blessed with wonderful weather. Hundreds of visitors—families, neighbours and friends of the cemetery—turned out for an evening of music and song, candle-lit shrines, personal tributes, and tea and flowers in the Celebration Hall.
In recognition of this wonderful tradition, we have posted a video from 2005 that tells the story of how it all began. Enjoy!
