There are so many places from where you can catch the Celebration of Light fireworks in Vancouver. From a blanket at Vanier Park, a bench near Jericho Beach, on the grass at English Bay, or a patio if you’re lucky enough to get a reservation. This year there’s another option that will not only give you a spectacular view, but in the process you’ll be supporting a great cause.
Dine Above the Stars premiers on July 28th at 6:00pm as 88 guests are invited to enjoy a food, wine, and the fireworks from the 35th floor of The Coast Plaza Hotel & Suites on Denman. Presented by The Coast and Sumac Ridge Estate Winery, the event will be supporting A Loving Spoonful through ticket sales and a silent auction.
