Once again the Celebration of Light returns to Vancouver. Running from July 30th to August 6th This firework festival features 3 performances – China July 30th, Spain August 3rd, and Canada August 6th. The firework barge will be set up in English Bay with some serious parking/traffic restrictions set up in the area… more of those details here.
While this is a free event it always requires hours of planning to figure out parking and the best vantage point. For those serious firework buffs who have no desire to compete with crowds you can buy bleacher tickets for $45 a seat – not sure who’s going to pay that…but just putting it out there. Personally I like my space and head out to Spanish Banks to watch the show.
Check out the official website here for full details.
PS. Not sure if anyone else has noticed this, but this event seems to bring out every kid in the surrounding 50km’s that wants to get super drunk for their first time – some good bonus entertainment.
