Thunder? No. Crazy wind storm? No. Surprise fireworks show? Yes!

“Vancouver fireworks” was trending on Twitter last night as hundreds of social media users took to the internet to find out who was responsible for the surprise display.

The answer? No it wasn’t the grand opening of Trump Tower, but instead a special show put on for convention-goers.

You see, from time to time, private events at the Vancouver Convention Centre have fireworks displays, and when they do, Vancouverites go crazy for them.
