HSBC Celebration of Light, Vancouver BC - Barclay House, Vancouver Bed and Breakfast, Vancouver, BCFormerly called the Symphony of Fire Fireworks competition, Vancouver hosts the HSBC Celebration of Light each year. This is an exciting world-class fireworks competition displayed from a barge located in English Bay. Each year the event brings together pyrotechnic entries from three competing countries. The fireworks displays last about 25 minutes and are simulcast to carefully chosen music broadcast on local radio. Each country is displayed on a separate night so the event spans more than a week. It’s free to watch from public parks and beaches and draws estimated crowds of 1.2 million people. The event occurs late in July, early August.
