Tens of thousands of young people, families, residents and visitors alike will flock to beaches and balconies to take in the spectacle. This year, there’s a new option for viewing the fireworks as a series of bleachers will be set up as the best seats around.

Tickets for bleacher seats are currently available online for $35 (before May 31st) and if you’ve been out on a “fireworks night” before, you may just know the advantage of having reserved seating in advance. On the bleachers you will have an unobstructed view of the fireworks barge, you will actually be able to hear the accompanying music, you won’t need to stake out your spot hours in advance, and the money you spend will go toward the Celebration of Light — ensuring that it remains as an annual event in Vancouver.

I will draw one winner at random from all entries (Twitter and the contest box) at 12:00pm on Thursday, June 8, 2011. As I have two unique entry methods, a Twitter name will be drawn and a name will be drawn using Contest Machine. I will then do a draw between the two for the winner.
