Celebration of Light!

The Celebration of Light is an annual international fireworks competition held in Vancouver, Canada. This is one of the world’s biggest and most prominent fireworks competitions. The celebration showcases stunning displays of pyrotechnic creativity.

The Celebration of Light debuted as a component of Expo 86, the World’s Fair, back in 1990. The event was a huge hit and later became a yearly tradition in Vancouver, making it one of the longest-running and most popular fireworks festivals in the world.

The Celebration of Light has become a cherished tradition in Vancouver, bringing together locals and tourists alike. It fosters a sense of community and pride as people gather to celebrate the beauty of light and the joy it brings. The festival has also become a platform for cultural exchange and understanding, as it highlights the different artistic expressions and traditions of the participating countries.

The Celebration of Light, in a broader sense, serves as a reminder of the transformational power of illumination, both literally and figuratively. It represents the victory of wisdom over ignorance, optimism over despondency, and unity over separation. It inspires us to seek out and share light in our lives, to clear the way for others and ourselves, and to find comfort and inspiration in the brilliance of life.

The event takes place at English Bay, and the competing countries are Australia, Mexico, and the Philippines. Australia (Howard & Sons Pyrotechnics) will perform on July 22, 2023, Mexico (Grupo AVACON) on July 26, 2023, and the Philippines (Blue Peacock) on July 29, 2023. Each team will showcase their skills and creativity with fireworks displays synchronised to music.
