Vancouver, Festivals & Events
Another "Celebration of Light" fireworks festival has come and left Vancouver. About 1.4 million people took in the free event, and if you've never been before, the crowds can get unruly. This year I decided not fight the crowds on the Downtown side of English Bay and headed over the Burrard Bridge to the Vanier Park side. What a difference! The crowds on the south side are much better behaved, you can actually find a spot to sit down and when the show is over people leave the area peacefully. I'm not suggesting there aren't people there, just not nearly as many people. Something to consider if you plan on going to next year's festival.
