Celebration of Light 2014 Vancouver fireworks

A fireworks team from the United States dazzled hundreds of thousands of Metro Vancouverites on the opening night of the Celebration of Light 2014, the fireworks competition’s 24th year.

Police estimate a crowd in excess of 250,000 gathered at Vancouver’s beaches. Few disruptions or incidents were recorded and people were enjoying themselves at the family-oriented event.

There were 239 liquor pour outs, 48 liquor seizures, 2 weapon seizures, 53 violation tickets, 7 bylaw violation tickets, 1 arrest for public intoxication and 17 breach of the peace arrests.

The response to last night’s performance on social media has also been overwhelmingly positive and sets a benchmark standard for the two remaining nights of shows.

France is up next on Wednesday, July 30, followed by Japan on Saturday, August 2.
