Three things to do this week (Oct. 9 to 13)

1. If you have kids, then perhaps you love the days of pumpkinshaped cookies, Halloween crafts and buying face paint by the pallet. Another perk? Bear Creek Park’s annual Pumpkin Express. The family-friendly train opens to the public Friday (Oct. 10) for its 18th Halloween season. Kids will have the chance to make a pumpkin headband, play Halloween-themed games, get a treat and take home a petite pumpkin of their own. The Pumpkin Express opens at 10 a.m. and runs until 4:30 p.m. Tickets to ride the train are $9.50 each, for both adults and children.

2. Fraser Valley fashionistas, look out! The Aritizia Warehouse sale is making a pop-up at The Shops at Morgan Crossing for the next three weeks. Pick through fall fashions up to 90 per cent off until Oct. 31. Hours for the temporary pop-up shop are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday to Wednesday, until 9 p.m. on Thursdays and Fridays, and from 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturdays. Happy shopping!

3. Ever wonder what happened to the souls of Henry the VIII’s six dead wives? Well, Centre Stage at Surrey City Hall is kicking off its first season with Til Death: The Six Wives of Henry VIII, a one-person show that sees all six wives in a "spirited" discussion in the afterlife’s waiting room. The play hits the stage today (Oct. 9) and tomorrow (Oct. 10) at 8 p.m. Tickets are $28; call 604-501-5566 or visit
