For thirty years the skies above English Bay have come alive each summer in a celebration of community, music, food, and fireworks. But not this year.
B.C.’s largest event, the Honda Celebration of Light, will not take place this summer.
The Vancouver Fireworks Festival Society made the announcement yesterday in an emailed statement.
Our team has been following guidance from the relevant government authorities and cautiously preparing for our summer event. However, comments made by health authorities this weekend indicate we must now accept the reality that the largest public event in our province will not happen as planned in July 2020.
The Vancouver Fireworks Festival Society is exploring the options for a different type of celebration in 2020. We hope to be able to make an announcement very soon, and in the meantime wish to thank our many partners, sponsors, participating countries and our millions of fans across the province and around the world for their ongoing support.
