On Wednesday night, an estimated 300,000 people crowded the beaches and parks around English Bay for this year’s second Celebration of Light fireworks show.

The 25-minute-long display by Team Brazil, represented by Group Vision Show Fireworks, was positively received on social media for its choreography, music and epic scale.

Despite the larger crowds, there were no major incidents although a handful of fines were issued for open liquor and smoking. There were as many as 50,000 more people watching the fireworks than Saturday night’s show by Team China.

This year’s fireworks festival marks the event’s 25th anniversary, which will be concluded by Team Canada on Saturday, August 1. At this time, weather forecasts indicate optimal conditions for fireworks viewing.

Here’s a compilation of photos and videos of fireworks, crowds and the parachuter stunt during Brazil’s night:
