What are your plans for Canada Day? Free Canada Day festivities and events, including musical performances and fireworks, happen annually around BC. The widely anticipated Honda Celebration of Light is back for another year; the annual tradition returns as follows:
- July 1 – Coast Capital Savings Canada Day Fireworks Show at Canada Place
- July 25 – Honda Celebration of Light
- July 29 – Honda Celebration of Light
- August 1 – Honda Celebration of Light
This year, however, the celebration will take place under special conditions as a tribute to the Celebration of Light's 25th anniversary! Specifically, for 25 days starting July 2nd, tickets will be hidden around Metro Vancouver—scavenger hunt style—and hints posted on the Honda Celebration of Light Facebook and Twitter accounts. Those who find the tickets will be given access to a behind-the-scenes look at the Celebration of Light and a behind-the-scenes barge tour, and will also receive two tickets to the YVR Observation Deck for the August 1 fireworks show and swag bags! It's bound to be another fun and patriotic celebration.
Happy 148th birthday, Canada!
