2012 Honda Celebration of Light Schedule


The largest off-shore fireworks display in the world is back and this year again there is no threat of cancellation. Honda is the title sponsor (for 3 years) and once again it will be a 3 day event. For many this is Vancouver’s premier summer event.  Once again bleacher seating will be returning.

2012 Celebration of Light Schedule

  • Saturday July 28th: Vietnam 10:00 – 10:25PM
  • Wednesday August 1st: Brazil 10:00 – 10:25PM
  • Saturday August 4th: Italy 10:00 – 10:25PM


Traffic and Road Closures

Car access into the West End will be limited to residents who can prove residency through car registration or a resident permit parking decal from 7:30PM on event nights.

Car access into Kits point will be limited to residents who can prove residency through car registration or a resident permit parking decal, from 6:00PM on event nights.

All other vehicles will not be allowed vehicle access into these two areas on event nights after closures. There will be strict enforcement of parking regulations in Resident Permit areas.  Please pay close attention to all parking restrictions or your vehicle will be towed and that’s never a nice way to end your night.

Please refer to the Road Closures map for resident access points into the restricted areas. All Traffic Barricades will be controlled by volunteers – please be nice and remember they’re doing their best to make this a safe experience for everyone!

    Usually there are 4 days for the event, 1 day for each of the three countries and an additional day where the winner is announced.
    Has this changed?
    How do we find out the winner?
