Celebration of Lights - suggestions needed
Posted 27 July 2012 - 01:20 PM
My family would like to go see the fireworks this year in Vancouver (Celebration of Lights). We went the year before last and parked inside Stanley Park and went to a spot along the seawall that had a good view of the barge (albeit a bit far away). This year, however, our needs have changed a little, and plus we'd like to be closer.
My parents are getting up there on the age ladder and aren't really keen on taking the bus and walking long distances. Unfortunately, as far as I know, all the places that are actually "close" to the barge are jam-packed on the day-of and aren't accessible by car. This means parking far away and walking to the destination. Is this a fairly accurate assessement?
If not, then what are some suggestions for viewing locations? My priorities are parking and ease-of-access.

If you want to park close enough that your parents don't have to walk too far, show up early in the afternoon and section off some room for yourselves.

Watch Bowness somehow mess up Tampa Bay's already amazing 2 powerplay units...he'll probably tell Stamkos to do drop passes from centre ice, take him out from the faceoff dot, and place him infront of the goalie

Im moving to Vancouver on the 12th of August from Australia so I'm a bit curious what this light display is and when it is?
You're just missing out on it. It's a massive fireworks competition/show. Happens every year at this time. http://hondacelebrationoflight.com/
Thanks VC for the sig!
Demo was great, but I'm a two-way guy.

I went to Vanier Park. It was perfect because we didn't get there till about 9:45 and we were still able to park on W4th and get a good spot on the beach. It's definitely further away than being right in English Bay but it was much more chill and family-oriented. Lots of young kids, older families, pets, etc. Don't worry though - the customary weed smokers were still out in full force (IMO you haven't had the full fireworks experience if you don't come home smelling like pot )
I recommend going there for anyone who isn't a fan of large crowds
