Our friend Marc invited us to his palace in the sky for a stellar view of the Celebration of Light fireworks festival. Spain brought everything that could be blown up, and proceeded to blow it up. Fantastic.
Over half a million people line Vancouver’s beaches to watch the show, with some people staking out blanket space 12 hours before the first rocket is launched. Anyone who has access to a roof grabs a brick, props open the fire door, and brings out the folding chairs. A secret vantage point is only secret to the people below.
Not being kids anymore, some of us have kids of our own, and watching them watch the fireworks was by far the best part.
