Putting on a stunning pyrotechnical show is expensive, something that has haunted the Celebration of Light for much of it’s lifetime. In recent years, the event has gone from four nights to three and was on the verge of disappearing altogether without financial support.
This year, a new sponsor has stepped up and three new countries are participating to give the Celebration of Light an explosion of colour. Honda Canada is the providing financial backing of the offshore fireworks spectacle for the next three years.
The Celebration of Light starts with Vietnam on Saturday, July 28th, Brazil on Wednesday, August 1st, and wraps up with Italy on Saturday, August 4th.
