Last night the United Kingdom kicked off the 2013 Celebration of Light fireworks with a display that was seen live by an estimated 250,000 people. Gathered on the shores of English Bay, Kitsilano, and anywhere the fiery bursts could be spotted from the air, the James Bond-themed show dazzled.
Watched @CelebofLight from English Bay. Loved the #Skyfall #fireworks! http://t.co/ub7GrR9WrV

This morning, a few fireworks photos of the UK at the Celebration of Light have been contributed to the Miss604 Flickr Pool and it’s my pleasure to show them off:
Next up is Canada on Wednesday, July 31st and then Thailand finishes the season on Saturday, August 3rd. You can still enter to win a VIP fireworks dining experience at Cactus Club English Bay (until July 29th) and be sure to show up early on fireworks nights to enjoy free SHOREfest concerts.
