Downtown Vancouver Canada Day Fireworks 2013

Comments 29 by Rebecca Bollwitt

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.

Follow Canada Place on Facebook and Twitter @PortMetroVan for all updates about Canada Day at Canada Place, including information about the parade and fireworks.

    The schedule is a nice feature, although I wish it included the cruise ship departure times. I love watching the cruise ships at Canada Place.

    My favorite feature of the PortMetroVan app is the daily schedule. It will make it easy to plan what bands to see on Canada Day!

    My favourite feature is the map. It not only shows you where everything is, but it has all the showtimes and details and you can add them to your favourites so you won’t miss anything! Can’t wait to use it!

  27. AmandineMonday, July 1st, 2013 — 7:48am PDT

    Oh, hard one! It’s a tie between beauty (digital postcards) and function (map).
