Skies over the English Bay in summers are a delight to the eyes. The best ever display of lights can be seen in Vancouver with various lights and sound effects. The Celebration of Light International Fireworks Competition, every year presents three wonderful lightened nights. Here are some of the best points in Vancouver to view this stunning show that transforms the night sky into a colourful canvas.

Without a shadow of doubt, English Bay Beach is one the best point to view this wondrous display of lights in Vancouver. This spot is the most crowded one and can accommodate a huge number of spectators. For the convenience of the people who gather to enjoy the event there are restrooms and food vendors.

Another great place to view the event is situated across the English Bay Beach. It is the Vanier Park which is considered to be the second best option to view the fireworks display and is equally crowded. So make it a point to reach early so that you can grab a good viewing spot and can enjoy the show fully. This place is very famous for Museum of Vancouver and the Beach Shakespeare Festival, also in summers.

In close proximity to the Vanier Park is one of the most popular beaches, the Kitsilano Beach. Similar to the Vanier Park, the road access will be limited here also, so you need to take the transit.

If you don’t wish to stand in the crowd of thousands on the English Bay, walk past that beach and you will find yourself walking on the Stanley Park Seawall facing. It provides a great view of the lights display from any point along that stretch of the beach without experiencing the aggressive crowds.

If you can manage watching the display without the facilities of the restrooms and concession stands, then the walking pathways of the Burrard Bridge is the best option for you.

Other options where you can avoid the huge crowds is the Granville Bridge or Dundarave Pier in West Vancouver. And if you are lucky enough to have a friend who owns a boat, then you can have the privilege to watch the grandeur show from a boat on the English Bay. Nowadays, many boat companies offer special packages during this time. To avail these you need to buy fireworks online tickets beforehand.
