Win VIP Fireworks Lounge Tickets

Comments 139 by Rebecca Bollwitt

The Honda Celebration of Light fireworks are always a highlight of summer in Vancouver, whether you’re watching from the shores of Kitsilano or a blanket on English Bay beach. To amp up your experience you can purchase tickets to The Keg Lounge, the YVR Observation Deck, or win your way into an exclusive viewing area.

Win VIP Fireworks Lounge Tickets

Thanks to, a friend of the world’s largest offshore fireworks competition, I have a pair of VIP tickets to The Clearly Contacts Lounge for prime viewing of the fireworks. You won’t have to jockey for a spot on the beach or worry about dinner that night, Clearly Contacts will have you covered with their signature blue bean bag chairs and BBQ.

The Clearly Contacts Lounge is located at the foot of Jervis Street near all of the Sunset Beach festivities like The Family Zone, presented by Clearly Contacts, which will have bouncy castles, facepainters, roaming mascots and more. Community and cultural programming on the SHOREFEST Stage will delight audiences of all ages throughout the day.


I will draw one winner for each fireworks night: July 26th (USA), July 30th (France), or August 2nd (Japan). Here’s how you can enter to win:

  • Leave a comment with which night you would want to attend (1 entry)
  • Follow @ClearlyContacts and @Miss604 on Instagram and tag a summer pic #ClearlySummer (1 entry)
  • Post the following on Twitter (1 entry)
RT to enter to win VIP @ClearlyContacts Lounge @CelebofLight fireworks tix from @Miss604 #ClearlySummer

Contest closes at 9:00pm on Thursday, July 24, 2014 and all three winners will be drawn at that time. The Clearly Contacts Lounge is open to all ages. Follow the on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for more information.

Note: Contest previously incorrectly noted The Keg Lounge as the prize. The prize is for the Clearly Contacts Lounge at the foot of Jervis Street. It includes VIP seating and BBQ.

Update The winner for July 26 is Jen! The winner for July 30 is Sanaz! The winner for Aug 2nd is @leblanc_van!
