The premier summer event in Greater Vancouver, the Celebration of Light pits three countries to compete in a spectacular fireworks display. Recognized as the longest running off-shore fireworks festival in the world, the event’s core purpose is to spark togetherness. This year marks a special change in programming as each fireworks team will design their performance to incorporate 1 of 3 Canadian songs voted in by Celebration of Light’s followers on social media. The three songs will commemorate classic Canadian music content including the Tragically Hip, Bryan Adams, and Leonard Cohen.

Firework shows begin at 10pm. Bring blankets or beach towels to sit on and reserve your space!
