The Honda Celebration of Light Fireworks combine the world’s largest offshore fireworks competition with a seaside festival complete with free concerts, food truck fare, and the Concord Pacific Seawall Challenge which is now in its second year. On July 26th, the first fireworks night this season, friend and family teams can compete for cash prizes totalling over $10,000. This urban adventure race sweeps across Concord’s Master-planned community, benefiting after-school programs in the Lower Mainland.
Concord Pacific Seawall Challenge
Last year’s team winners designated Chief Maquinna Elementary as the benefactor of the $5,000 donation. Principal Peter Evans said, “This is awesome! Our school community is already benefiting from the donation. To have Concord Pacific bring to the table a great event like the Seawall Challenge, that compliments the Celebration of Light, is really what community spirit is all about. We feel fortunate to have been selected by the winning team to receive the donation.”
This year two schools will benefit from $5,000 donations. Families and friends teams will compete in two slightly different race challenges. Like last year, challenges will vary with brainteasers, False Creek history questions, creativity and activity points. The challenge will run between 2:00pm and 7:00pm on July 26th so you’ll have time to settle in and enjoy Team USA’s fireworks once you’re done.
Join the Family Challenge if you have 2 or more children 12 or under on your team. Friend teams of four will compete in a series of tougher physical and mental challenges. Registration is $40/team (plus applicable fees) and participants must be 6 years of age or older, in teams of four. Family teams must have a minimum of two participants between the ages of 6 and 12.
Register your name on sign up and make sure to post your team name and photo by July 1st onto the Concord Social Facebook page. Registration is limited and sign-ups are well underway. Deadline to register is July 7th.
