Vancouver is host to the largest offshore fireworks festival in the world. Formerly known as the Benson & Hedges Symphony of Fire, it had to be renamed after anti-tobacco industry legislation came in a few years ago. Now it’s called the HSBC Celebration of Light and it’s amazing. The last show was August 5th, so this post is a wee bit late.

I had a final exam during the first show (Italy), but I made it out to the last three shows – China, Czech Republic and Mexico. As always we all had tons of fun. Here are a couple of pics, which of course do no justice to the awe-inspiring fireworks displays or the crazy musical selections chosen by each country.
