Vancouver Canada Day fireworks 2016 set to light up night skies

Jun 28 2016, 7:04 pm

Canada Place will once again play host to Vancouver’s largest Canada Day fireworks spectacular as two barges light up the skies over Burrard Inlet to celebrate our nation’s 149th birthday.

The barges will be located in Coal Harbour and Dundarave in West Vancouver, with the show to commence at 10:30 pm.

There are a few ways you can watch the fireworks, the first being the Fireworks Viewing Zone right at Canada Place. It’s a family-friendly setting that offers indoor bathroom facilities and is located right along the Canadian Trail. Tickets for the viewing zone cost $15, but children aged five and under can get in for free.

Don’t want to pay for the ticked portion? No problem. Here are some other viewing spots as recommended by Canada Place:

  • Harbour Green Park
  • Coal Harbour
  • Stanley Park by the 9 o’clock gun
  • Crab Park

They won’t be visible from English Bay, Kitsilano, or Spanish Banks.

If you’re on the North Shore, simply make your way to John Lawson Park in West Vancouver to watch the fireworks from the second barge.
