Only three nights of Light

The Celebration Of Light fireworks display will likely be shortened to three nights next summer, organizers say.

The Celebration Of Light fireworks display will likely be shortened to three nights next summer, organizers say.

In a presentation to the Vancouver Park Board yesterday, approval was sought for 1,000-seat bleachers in the VIP section at English Bay and a three-night format.

“This change reduces the celebration’s impact on and disruption to West End residents and will bring about a significant reduction in costs to the city,” said Brent MacGregor, chair of the Vancouver Fireworks Festival Society.

The annual event — soon to be in its 21st year — pits competing countries against each other in an attempt to put on the most dazzling choreographed fireworks display.
