Honda Celebration of Light debuts new family-friendly Festival Zone this month

Jul 11 2022, 10:09 pm

Vancouver’s highly anticipated Honda Celebration of Light will light up the sky over English Bay for the 30th year this month, and there’s a fun new way to spend the day as you wait for the fireworks to start.

Honda Celebration of Light will debut the all-ages Morton Park Festival Zone in the heart of the action at Morton Avenue and Denman Street.

The new festival hub is a family-friendly area operating each day of the fireworks festival from 2 to 8 pm and will feature live music, a variety of food trucks, sponsor activations, and an artisan marketplace.

Your first opportunity to visit the Morton Park Festival Zone is on Saturday, July 23, when Japan takes to the skies.

“After a two-year hiatus, BC’s most beloved event is returning with a bang,” said Paul Runnals, executive producer with Brandlive, in a release. “Featuring competing teams from Japan, Canada, and Spain, live music, food trucks, and the return of both the Red Bull Air Show and the Iconic Canadian Snowbirds presented this year by Concord Pacific, you won’t want to miss the excitement happening throughout English Bay.”

The festival zone is newly relocated from the installations of previous years at Second Beach and Sunset Beach.
