Hard to believe that our little fireworks festival is all grown up and turning 21 years old!
The flashes and booms over English Bay followed by ‘ooohs’ and ‘aahs”will fill the air of Vancouver as the Celebration of Light takes off for another year. This year’s “Battle Of Champions” edition kicks off Saturday July 30th with China followed by Spain on Wednesday August 3rd and finally Canada on Saturday August 6th. Listen to the simulcast music on Shore 104.3 FM.
In addition to the excitement of the spectacular fireworks, Shorefest, returns for a third year. This music festival features three stages; English Bay, Kits Beach and Vanier Park. Kits and Vanier Park stages are free for all to enjoy with the English Bay stage by-invitation-only performances for listeners of Shore 104.3.
This year’s performers include: former Barenaked Ladies frontman Steven Page, Wide Mouth Mason, Jim Byrnes, Jeremy Fisher, Leeroy Stagger, Grapes of Wrath’s Kevin Kane and The Sojourners.
Performances begin at 7pm each night of the Celebration of Light. So head down to the water’s edge early and get your seat, listen to some good tunes and enjoy an unique specactle each evening.
