Summer is in full swing #onRobson with July ending with a bang, as the Honda Celebration of Light takes over the English Bay skies and the Annual Vancouver Pride Parade makes its way down Robson Street in August. Be sure to include both on your summer bucket list.
Honda Celebration of Light – July 27, July 31, August 3
Three teams are taking to the barge this summer as a part of the Honda Celebration of Light and will be lighting up the sky.
On Saturday, July 27th, Team India will let their sparks fly, followed by Team Canada on Wednesday, July 31st and Team Croatia on Saturday, August 3rd. The 25-minute pyrotechnic displays begin at 10 p.m. each night, but the festivities start much earlier at English Bay and Second Beach. Enjoy music, food, air shows, kids activities and more.
Vancouver Pride Parade – August 4
One of Vancouver’s most anticipated summer events is just around the corner! The Annual Vancouver Pride Parade is taking place on Sunday, August 4th from 12PM – 3PM starting at Robson and Thurlow. The route continues down Robson to Denman, and turns onto Beach Ave where it will finish as it merges with Pacific. But not to worry, the celebrations don’t end there. The fun will continue at Sunset Beach with a Main Stage, Community Zone, Family Fun Zone, beer garden, food trucks, interactive art, plus much more.
The Pride Parade is a staple of the Vancouver summer calendar, and with 130+ parade entries, there will lots of amazing, colourful floats you won’t want to miss. Head down early to get your prime viewing spot #onRobson.
