Vancouver’s 2024 Celebration of Light competitors revealed

Vancouver’s biggest summer event is coming back with a bang, as the Honda Celebration of Light returns to English Bay in July.

Portugal will kick off the competition on Saturday, July 20, Malaysia gets its turn on Wednesday, July 24, and the United Kingdom wraps it up on July 27.

Besides the pyrotechnics, there will also be a “drone fireworks” display before each of the three shows.

The three-night event brings more than 400,000 to Vancouver’s West End neighbourhood, and is the longest-running fireworks competition in the world.
