Drone Show at English Bay Ahead of Celebration of Light Fireworks

At 10:00pm each night the fireworks will begin from barges located in English Bay. Ahead of each show at approximately 9:50pm, attendees can watch a dazzling, choreographed drone display, sponsored by the BC Honda Dealers Association.

The performances will feature 200 drones and will be conducted under a special flight operations certificate issued by Transport Canada, ensuring safety and compliance. Drones are each capable of displaying millions of colours, and will perform in tightly choreographed formations, creating complex geometric shapes, logos, and images that will dance against the night sky’s black backdrop.

Archangel Fireworks is partnering with North Star Drone Shows, a leader in drone show production across Canada, to deliver all three drone shows. North Star Drone Shows offers an impressive portfolio, having produced shows for notable events such as the NBA Draft Sizzle, LAFC Show, Paris Hilton Show, Candy Crush Show, Super Bowl Instagram Videos, NASCAR, and Caesars Hotel.

The event welcomes back the Red Bull Air Show, a spectacular pre-show performance happening on all three festival nights at 7:40pm.
