Wanting to head out to the Honda Celebration of Light but you aren’t able to spend all day staking out the perfect spot along English bay, well the festival organizers are constantly adding new features to keep you comfortable and entertained while you wait for the spectacular fireworks displays to start. New and returning features including the SHOREFEST concert series at Sunset Beach and the Food Truck Festival at English Bay.
Worried that you have plans or work earlier in the day and you might not be able to have a great spot to view the fireworks, then this is a new feature that is great for you (and me):
The YVR Observation Deck
The custom built bleacher-style seating of the YVR Observation Deck is situated in the heart of the action at English Bay. This all-ages licensed area offers reserved seats with a prime view of the fireworks, musical simulcast of the fireworks soundtrack, cash bar service, private washroom facilities, food service and giveaways.
Also available for reservation are the Keg Lounge (ages 19+) and the Inukshuk Lounge (family friendly).
So reserve your seats, grab some food, and listen to some music and enjoy all that the 26th annual Honda Celebration of Lights has to offer this summer.
