Canada Place is presenting Canada Day fireworks in downtown Vancouver on Monday, July 1st with not one but two fireworks barges in Burrrd Inlet.

One barge will be setup in Coal Harbour and the other will be closer to Dundarave in West Vancouver. The best viewing locations will be Dundarave and Ambleside in West Vancouver, North Vancouver, Coal Harbour, Stanley Park, Harbour Green Park, and Crab Park.

The absolute best viewing are will be right at Canada Place in the Prime Viewing Zone where you can purchase tickets for $10. Proceeds support the Burrard Inlet Fireworks Society. Kids six and under are free if accompanied by an adult.

The 25-minute fireworks show will be simulcast on CFMI Classic Rock 101 and the PortMetroVan app for Android & iOS devices. The fireworks show will also be broadcast live on Shaw TV.
