The Honda Celebration of Light resumes tonight with a highly anticipated performance from Team Canada and Midnight Sun Fireworks. An estimated 500,000 people will convene around the beaches of English Bay to take in the magic, share their national pride and enjoy the second day of the festival.
Hailing from the Yukon, Midnight Sun Fireworks is an award-winning team of pyrotechnicians deeply passionate about creating unique shows brought to life by carefully curated musical soundtracks. Guests will surely be captivated by their wondrous display that emphasizes elements of surprise and creative expression.
A notable festival highlight being held just prior to Team Canada’s demonstration is a performance from the iconic Canadian Snowbird team. The Canadian Snowbirds are the military aerobatics flight demonstration team of the Royal Canadian Air Force and will be performing formation flyovers above Metro Vancouver – making for a truly unforgettable evening of live entertainment.
The nightly fireworks display may be the finale of the entertainment offerings, but there’s so much to see and do throughout the day. To make the most out of your visit to this year’s celebration, make sure to check out the Morton Park Festival Zone. This licensed all-ages, family friendly area will operate from 2 p.m. – 8 p.m. daily and features live music, mouth-watering food trucks, sponsor activations and an artisan marketplace showcasing the work of local creators.
Given the large volume of guests and limited opportunities for parking, Honda Celebration of Light is encouraging attendees to walk, cycle or transit to get to the event. Please note that there will be a bike lane detour and partial road closure along Beach Avenue beginning at 9 a.m. each day of the event. Restricted vehicle access for non-residents of the West End will also be in place from 7 p.m. daily.
