Free fireworks with a beachfront view? Heck yeah. We’re in. Kitsilano residents enjoy one of the best views of the Vancouver Celebration of Light fireworks competition without having to leave the neighbourhood. Those of us who don’t have an ocean-facing patio will head down to Vanier Park or Kits Beach for the fun. This year, the pyrotechnic showdown takes place July 23, July 27, and July 30, with the Netherlands, Australia and the USA competing for total domination (in that order).
Also good to know: Celebration of Light has launched a handy app so you can find out more about the live music and venues for events that accompany the fireworks. You can also vote for a winner; a People’s Choice Award will be determined at the end of the festival.
