Did you hear big booms that sound like large fireworks going off? You aren’t mistaken as there were fireworks going off at Coal Harbour at 10 p.m. for a private event held at the Vancouver Convention Centre.

This is not the first time this year that there has been a secret, private barge-launched fireworks display. On May 13, the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum concluded their conference with a spectacular display, and there have been similar private displays in the last few years.

Knowledge of these shows is kept secret as a means of keeping the event private and preventing the inevitable draw of large crowds and the associated costs of crowd control and garbage cleanup.

Five major public fireworks displays are scheduled for this year: Canada Day at Canada Place (July 1), Celebration of Light (July 26 & 30, August 2), and New Year’s Eve (December 31).
