The Honda Celebration of Light is the world’s largest offshore fireworks competition and one of Canada’s biggest celebrations.

The event has been cancelled for the past two summers, but promises to return bigger than never.  

Over the course of the 3 days, over a million Vancouverites watch the skies of English Bay get lit up by different countries all competing for our vote.
