Honda Celebration of Light (formerly known as HSBC Celebration of Light and, prior to that, Benson & Hedges Symphony of Fire) is an annual musical fireworks competition in Vancouver, British Columbia. This multi-day event is held around August Long Weekend and draws hundreds of thousands of spectators each day gathering around English Bay. Each firework lasts for at least 30 minutes and displays in concert with music. The fireworks shoot directly from water on English Bay. Every year, three or four different countries partipate in this international competition. The first “Symphony of Fire” was held from July 25 to August 5 of 1990. The celebration is one of Vancouver’s largest and most well known festivals.
