The Honda Celebration of Light is BC’s biggest event. It is not only the longest-running offshore fireworks competition in the world, but it also attracts up to 400,000 spectators along English Bay each evening. Owned by the Not For Profit Vancouver Fireworks Festival Society, 2015 marks the 25th anniversary of the event, which contributes in excess of $39 million in incremental tourism and hospitality spending each year. 2015 will bring 3 new countries to Vancouver, guaranteed to put on world class Pyro-Musical performances each night.
It was in the summer of 1990 that Vancouverites experienced their first multi-night summer fireworks festival on the shores of English Bay – and it has returned for every consecutive summer ever since. Local event organizers brand.LIVE have announced plans to take the Celebration of Light 2015 to a new level to celebrate the fireworks festival’s 25th anniversary.
This year’s participating countries are China (July 25), Brazil (July 29) and Canada (August 1).
Returning this year is the free SHOREFEST concert series, The Keg Lounge and the YVR Observation Deck, as well as the organizers are introducing two new spaces to enjoy the nighttime fireworks: a licensed, ticketed lounge at the English Bay Inukshuk and a family-friendly, licensed bistro in the Sunset Beach Park that will not require tickets for admission.
Tickets for all ticketed areas go on sale on April 1 at www.celebrationoflight.com.
“The Honda Celebration of Light showcases Vancouver on the world stage and continues to be one of Vancouver’s best-known and most popular summer festivals,” said Mayor Gregor Robertson.
“The festival has become a signature summer event for residents and visitors alike and is a huge boost to our vibrant local economy.”
