Celebration of Light Bleacher Contest 3by
The Celebration of Light fireworks nights are fast-approaching and as the weather dries up (even if the sun isn’t shining) locals are already thinking about which spot they’ll stake out on the beach. For those wanting a different experience this year, you can purchase reserved bleacher seats in English Bay. You’ll have an unobstructed view of the fireworks barge in English Bay and even be able to enjoy artists on the ShoreFest concert stage.
I’ve hosted two contests already, one for bleacher seats on July 30th with China, and another for Spain on August 3rd. The final pair of reserved bleacher seats for Canada next Wednesday, August 6th are now up for grabs. Here’s how you can enter to win:
I will draw the winner at random from all entries on Monday, August 1st at 9:00am.
Follow the Celebration of Light on Twitter or Facebook for updates leading up to this summer’s events and add your photos to their group on Flickr.
Update The contest winner is James (@jstewart007)!

China has put on a really great show in the past! Definitely one of my favs. 🙂
I loved when Sweden used Abba songs as their background music, it spread such a feel-good vibe on that night!
I’m a shameless homer, so I always enjoy the show that Canada puts on!
China’s fireworks were good last year. But gota have the Canadian one, being in Canada and all!!
I was looking forward to Mexico participating this year, because I heard from my Mexico friend that the firework shows usually features portraits of well respected individuals in the sky; which is interesting instead of just the usual firework flowers.
China! haha, not just because im chinese, but because they have great fireworks!
China is always good
China. They always seem to do a great job!
China is always good, but I hope Canada wins… maybe we’ll get 4 nights back!

I can’t really recall what country I have enjoyed the most in the past as they have all been spectacular.
i would love to see Canada fireworks. they have won the event in the past and they never dissappoint. Being an avid photographyer I would love to capture the beauty of the fireworks in pictures.
I’m rooting for Canada, as always. 🙂
China is always fantastic!
Korea or Canada
Well, South Africa was amazing … but really, these country names are meaningless, aren’t they? They don’t officially represent a nation. It’s just a label, isn’t it?
Canada! And I really liked the Mexico one last year.
Fireworks in combination with music. Brazil, but then again am not picky. Just happy to celebrate it on Saturday with you guys #Vancouver
My pick is always Canada. Gotta support my country!
Haven’t seen the fireworks yet. Saving best for the last. Go Canada!
I would LOVE to win these tix! It’s been eons since I’ve seen the fireworks… Go Canada go!!
I really like the US show a few years back. I’d like to see them compete again.
