Wednesday’s Vancouver’s streets and corners were filled with people wanting to see the annual Celebration of Light Festival happening at English Bay.
Since 1990, Vancouver has been home to the Celebration of Light (originally known as the Symphony of Fire). This international pyro-musical fireworks competition has attracted the world’s leading fireworks designers and is seen as a highly prestigious event. The fireworks festival creates an exciting arena where spectators can enjoy each country’s representatives unveil their latest techniques and use the most innovative fireworks materials as they compete to be crowned the winner.
Didn’t get the chance to see Wednesday’s show? No worries, you have three more opportunities! Meet other INTERNeX candidates this Saturday for another viewing of the Fireworks. We will meet up at the Starbucks behind the laughing statue in English Bay at 7 pm! Bring a good book, a game and a blanket because it will be a wait and can get a bit cold after the sun goes down!
