It's October and with that comes Octoburgerfest this year.

The month-long ode to fun on a bun comes from the Real Beef Buddies, who've hacked and slashed their way through Vancouver's food jungle to create three burger paths for followers to explore. That's triple last year!

The three "patty paths" take eaters to 24 different restaurants who've created finely tuned burgers. Each path follows a different style: The Smashes (smash burgers), The Classics, and The Fancies.

Participants can eat their way through one or more of the "patty paths" then rate the burgers and help the Real Beef Buddies name the top burger in Vancouver.

As of today, Oct. 1 they've released their selections.
