English Bay Fireworks

Summer Celebration of Light

Since 1990, Vancouver has hosted a fireworks show competition like no other. Three international companies are invited to share their own unique pyrotechnic displays over three nights, accompanied by live music!

The Celebration of Light event is amazing every year, attracting hundreds of thousands of spectators on each of the three nights.

We ended our wonderful day in Vancouver by getting to our assigned bleacher seats early so we could enjoy the sunset. A little later, the dazzling firework show overlooking the gorgeous English Bay took over the sky and we said our goodbyes to Canada.
