For those of you with a bit of a wild streak, those of you with a pyromaniac side, and those of you without a budget, here is the article you’ve been looking for all Halloween season.
A good fireworks show is a real anchor for a weekend of festivities. It’s the final blowout after a few house parties and a costume idea gone wrong.
Due to laws surrounding fireworks becoming even stricter over the last year, the pickings are slim – but not so slim.
Here’s a pretty awesome list of fireworks shows available in Metro Vancouver:
