The Celebration of Light will return this year to paint the skies above English Bay on July 30th, August 3rd, and August 6th.

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.

Over the next few weeks I’ll be giving away pairs of bleacher tickets for each of the fireworks nights. Here’s how you can enter to win tickets to the first fireworks show of 2011:

1. Fill out the form below by entering the name of the country that will present July 30th.

If you cannot see the contest box that is posted right above this text, you can enter by going directly to the hosted contest page.

2. Or for an additional entry, post the following on Twitter:

I entered to win bleacher seating for the @CelebofLight fireworks from @miss604 http://ow.ly/534g8

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.
