Celebration of Lights Fireworks Show! Part 3

It appears that I'll be hosting, or at least co-hosting the event now! So below is a little more information!

**NEW** Meeting spot has been changed to the location mentioned above with the pictures - thank you Ed for the pictures and recommendation.

About the Event

This is the 23rd consecutive year of the fireworks event and this particular day is the third and final part of this year's fireworks event, featuring Thailand fireworks. This event attracts massive crowds, especially in the English Bay area, and features about 25 minutes nonstop fireworks! For more information about the fireworks, refer to this link.

Meeting Information


I will be arriving in the area for around 7:00, somewhere as close to the water as possible, either in the sand or nearby - the area will be directly in front of the Cactus Club restaurant. While the event doesn't start until 10:00, it's a very good idea to come earlier than that as English Bay fills up quickly.

Please ensure that you bring your own blanket/towel to sit on as you may not have a sitting spot otherwise. 

Due to the crowd size of this event, it's possible we may get a bit spread out toward the end, and especially if you are arriving later. I will be giving my contact information out closer to the event time.

After the fireworks are over, depending on interest we can go for a drink and/or some food.

Getting There

It's really a good idea to take transit for this event - unless you have a certain place to park, close parking will be very difficult to come across on this night. For those coming from afar and driving, it may be easier to park near a skytrain station.


For any further questions, please feel free to post below or PM me, cheers!

    Good fireworks show, thanks to those who came out! In the end, it worked out pretty well finding people with the phone calling tactic given the size of the crowd out there!

    Sorry we didn't get to join you guys! The UFC event went on way longer than expected (we didn't get our bills settled until just before 9:50)

    I'm having trouble finding the group. I'm standing behind a bright giant blue umbrella which is in front of the cactus club sign. I'm wearing a blue t shirt with strips. And grey pants

    August 3, 2013

    • Andrew

      Not sure where the umbrella is. I'm standing in a dark green shirt right now.

    August 3, 2013

  • Andrew

    Have set up a couple towels in the sand in front of cactus club. Space is limited, so you may be sitting somewhere in the vicinity depending on when you show up.

    August 3, 2013

  • Amy K.

    Hi :) What time is the meeting? Maybe I'll be able to go 9pm TT_TT Can I go there later? Do you have someone who go later? I wanna go together!

    August 3, 2013

    • Jeff W.

      There will be a small group of us coming from another event downtown after 8:30pm (http://bit.ly/18UEPmU­). You can call/text at [masked] and maybe join the group on the walk over

    • Jeff W.

      If you can't check the Meetup website, the meeting place is in front of the Cactus Club (roughly in front of the sign/entrance).

    IMPORTANT: Location has been changed as above with pictures shown. Thank you Ed for the recommendation and pictures!

    Contact information for calling me will be given out in a couple hours this afternoon. Cheers.

    August 3, 2013

    • Tim

      I think it might possibly be better to put a contact number earlier rather then later...possible some people may already be out in the day and/or are unable to check the site during the day (such as people that don't have smart phones).

      August 3, 2013

  • Candace

    uhhhh, so if I decide to go to this I'll meet everyone "by the water"?? I'm pretty sure there will be about a million people in the exact same spot. Could you maybe bring a big flag or something so we can spot you?

    August 2, 2013

    • Mila C.

      good job with the picts Ed!!! now everybody can be really easy to find the spot :)

      August 3, 2013

    • Tim

      hopefully that exact precise spot won't be taken by someone else before 7pm. =b

    Our pub night is super close To the area. You all should pop by before or after the fireworks! - we'll be at "The Park at English Bay" :)

    Who had originally created this event? It might be beneficial if there are a few extra details for the event if the creator doesn't mind me editing it. I could co-host if you would like. Cheers.

      I have updated the details have been updated as Ed has set me as host.

    Is there a carpool that I can join? I live in North Van but can meet at Waterfront or another Skytrain station.

    July 27, 2013

    • Andrew W.

      And then how will you drink beer without getting pulled over later? Speaking of which, our ESL Meet Up is having a pub night and then going to the fireworks later. Maybe if you guys find and take over a good spot, and have room, we can join you.

      Corey I also live in North Van if you wanted to take transit together. I'll be at work until 6 though (which is near Lonsdale and 19th)

    I want to come but I don't know that I'll be able to make it right at 7. Maybe the organizer can post which spot you guys pick at the time of the event
