2017 Honda Celebration of Light – Japan

My family used to go for the fireworks competitions in Vancouver every summer at Kits Beach when our boys were still young. We have not been back for a few years since our boys have grown up. Nowadays, Nanzaro will go watch it with his friends and Arkensen is not interested anymore.

Ben was lucky to find a free parking on a side street at W 5th ave and Burrard St. We walked over the Burrard St. Bridge to go the English Bay. From the Burrard St. Bridge, we could see leisure boats sailing towards the barge for the fireworks.

We parked ourselves by the rocks just across the Inushuk.

The crowds.

The sun set view was great from the beach.

Some entertainment from a boat that fires water cannons.

Clouds reflecting beautiful rays from the setting sun.

Once the sky was dark, the anticipating fireworks began.

Below is a short clip of the fireworks. Unfortunately, my camera battery died.

There are two more Celebration of Lights events in this coming week, i.e. 2nd August for UK and 5th August for Canada. It’s a great family events to enjoy the warm summer nights.
