  I got a line on the fireworks festival in Vancouver this summer, so I can look ahead and plan for some time off to go to it.  We have gone a few years and it is really spectacular if you can manage the crowds.  It works a lot better if you book a hotel room overlooking English Bay and stay the night.

HSBC Celebration of Light Fireworks Competition
July 25 and 28, August 1 and 4
The HSBC Celebration of Light is Vancouver’s annual international fireworks competition and brings together talented pyro-technicians from three countries (Spain, Canada and China this year). Teams light up the sky over Vancouver’s downtown core and English Bay with an amazing show choreographed to music. These incredible displays draw crowds of more than 1.5 million people over the four-night celebration. Be sure to get to the beach early to reserve your plot of sand, pull up a blanket and enjoy a picnic during this free show. Best viewing locations are at English Bay, Kitsilano Beach, Vanier Park, Jericho Beach and West Vancouver. All performances begin at 10pm. (Don’t forget to tune into 101.1 FM for the music simulcast).
