2015 will be the 25th anniversary for the Vancouver ‘Honda Celebration of Light‘ fireworks competition, this year in July and August.
Whilst it might not be the biggest competition – last year there were only three competitors – it is arguably the best attended with over 400,000 people joining the party at English Bay.
The organisers were kind enough to invite the World Fireworks Championship to attend one year and we can vouch for how great an event it is. The party atmosphere pervades the whole city, with thousands arriving early to pic-nic on the beach.
Each display fires from an enormous barge moored in English Bay and it, and the thousands of spectator boats, make a great sight.
This years participants will be announced in April 2015.
