Back for its 22nd year, its the Celebration of Light. This year, the event will be on Saturday, July 28; Wednesday, August 1; and Saturday, August 4th featuring light displays from Vietnam, Brazil, and Italy respectively. The light show starts at 10pm and typically goes for about 25 minutes.
If you plan on going down, there are many points that you can watch the fireworks from the West End and Kits Point. However, the fireworks can still be seen from places such as Ambleside and SFU. Tune in to The Shore 104.3FM for the music.
The best view points are at Sunset Beach and English Bay, but get there early to stake out your spot. If time is an issue and money isn't, you can purchase reserve seating from the YVR Observation Deck or The Keg VIP Lounge.
