Vancouver, Festivals & Events
As Canada grows a year older every July 1, hundreds of thousands of proud Canadians and delighted tourists turn out to celebrate the nation's birthday. A full day's festivities is always capped off with an excellent fireworks show over the colorful waters of Coal Harbour. The show can be watched from Canada Place, the Coal Harbour seawall, Stanley Park, or North Vancouver, and is a guaranteed crowd pleaser. Indeed, every explosive moment is all the more magical when the thousands of people around you woo and ahh in unison!
