The Bollywood Boyz team up for an ECCW wrestling event in Cloverdale on Friday night (Oct. 30).

The Bollywood Boyz team up for an ECCW wrestling event in Cloverdale on Friday night (Oct. 30).

1. “Halloween Hell” is the name of the Elite Canadian Championship Wrestling event this Friday night (Oct. 30) at Cloverdale Agriplex, and with good reason. A “Steel Cage” match for the ECCW tag-team championship belts pits The Bollywood Boyz (Gurv Sihra and Harv Sihra, the champs) against The Amerikan Gunns (challengers Ethan H.D. and Mike Santiago). Meanwhile, a truly frightening “Fans Bring the Weapons” bout involves The House of Hell versus Andy “The Dreadful” Bird & The Cunninghams. It all sounds wonderfully hellish. The bell time is 7:30 p.m. at the arena, and beer, cider and wine will be available for $6 a cup. For tickets and show info, visit Shop.eccw.com.

2. Light up your night during another Garden Light Festival, an annual event staged by the City of Surrey’s Partners in Parks department. This year’s gathering, set for Thursday, Nov. 5 at Bear Creek Park, will illuminate the garden with the help of 365 Productions, which will work to combine “bold digital technology with the natural landscape of the garden, this all-new experience of sound and light.” Visits can wander through the lit up paths “and be wowed by an ever-changing display of colours illuminating the garden, incredible tree projections and an enchanting river of ice and light.” It sounds very cool, and there’s music, food vendors and a Wildlife at Night Walk, too. Pack a flashlight for this event, at 13750 88 Ave. (across from the water park) from 5 to 8 p.m. For more details, call 604-501-5050 or visit Surrey.ca/culture-recreation/14033.aspx.

3. Also next Thursday (Nov. 5), Vancouver author Peter Busby visits Surrey Art Gallery to talk about “The Life and Art of Jack Akroyd,” the title of his new book. It explores the relatively unknown artist’s journey to B.C. from his native England and how, today, his painted landscapes have become collected by art lovers around the world. Like Akroyd before him, Busby was born in West Yorkshire and later settled in Vancouver. He wrote the TV serial “Thin Air” and also the children’s book “First to Fly,” which won the 2003 James Madison Award for American non-fiction – an unusual feat for a Canadian author. The Thursday Artist Talk event at SAG starts at 7:30 p.m., with time for questions and conversation during and following the talk. The gallery is located at Bear Creek Park.
