There is so much going on this weekend! Check it out!
Vancouver – English Bay
On Saturday, the 21st Annual Celebration of Light Festival will be kicked off by the 2008 winner and inventor of fireworks – China!
With their “China Storm” show, they will use the seasonal calendar as an inspiration to provide a trip through the year of the Rabbit, with fireworks being used to demonstrate this tradition. The Chinese calendar is still used for marking traditional East Asian holidays such as the Chinese New Year and wedding dates.
The show will start at 10.00pm but be sure to be there waaay earlier as it will be packed with 400.000 people having the same intention as you! 😉
