An eerie sense of fear and excitement washed over the city of Surrey in the year of 2003. A new monster had made it’s presence known, latching on to our deepest nightmares. Legend has it that this monstrosity rises every Halloween season to bring terror and anguish to those who seek its thrill. Patrons of Surrey: Beware.

Shambhala Music Festival: An Unaltered Tale of My Altered Journey

Featured Image | Shambhala Music Festival It’s 10am on Tuesday, I have just awoken from a nearly 19-hour sleep. I left Shambhala at around 5:30am Monday morning, although it felt more like Sunday night.

The beautiful and natural greens that surrounds the province, the cleanly-coated white mountains of Whistler, the multicultural diversity that inhabits the Seattle-meets-Hollywood Canadian hybrid that is the city of Vancouver. Most of us also won’t forget about that sweet-sweet BC bud. Greenery is not all that grows within these Western Canadian soils, however. Lurking the electronic dance music community is a plethora of British Columbian artists with dreams of making the world a bouncier place. BC’s own Shambhala Music Festival is an annual meetup of those looking to...

Vancouver Paranormal Society to publicly host ghostly investigation at Surrey’s Camp Alexandra

Paranormal is a word that often draws intrigue. For years, humankind has tested ways to communicate with those who have passed on while others remain skeptical and reserved from the phenomenon. Vancouver Paranormal Society (VPS) has been exploring the questions of afterlife since 1993 and officially became a legitimate non-profit organization after VPS President Peter Renn took over around six years ago. Vice President Kelly Berge and Investigator Mike Lutke spoke with Surrey604 about their personal experiences with spirits as well as the public investigation of Surrey’s Camp Alexandra on July 16. “This will be our second public event...
