One barge will be located in Coal Harbour in downtown Vancouver; a second barge will be located off the shores of Dundarave in West Vancouver.

The two barges allow for memorable displays of pyrotechnics to both those in the downtown core and the North Shore, using the North Shore mountains and outline of downtown Vancouver as backdrops for one another.
