Vancouver’s highly-anticipated Honda Celebration of Light is set to light up the sky over English Bay for its 28th year this summer.

Kicking off on July 28, the international fireworks show is expected to attract a huge audience this year, after an estimated one million (plus some) people gathered in parks and along beaches near the Bay for last year’s events.

Participating countries confirmed for this year’s festival include; South Africa on July 28, Sweden on August 1, and South Korea on August 4. Each country will be incorporating the same theme, “Love”, into their fireworks display, along with a mesmerizing soundtrack.
