The Celebration of Light is a musical fireworks competition held annually in Vancouver, Canada. Like the Olympics, multiple countries bring their best to represent in the competition. The celebration’s been going on since 1990 and is globally recognized as the longest running off-shore fireworks competitions in the world. On average, about 1.4 million people head to Vancouver’s beautiful English Bay to watch the fireworks each year.

Thanks to my good buddy Vinay for offering up such a sick view and good times!
