Fireworks VIPs at Celebration of Light Vancouver

Jul 30, 2005

By Catherine Barr


Hundreds of thousands of people literally jam their way into the West End for the annual Celebration of Light fireworks competition - but only a select few get the best seats in the house. The VIP patio at the Boathouse restaurant is where the judges, sponsors and invited guests sit for cocktails and dinner before every show - now that's a big bang for your buck.

Catherine Barr, Vancouver's celebrity events reporter and photographer, is supported online by CLR Communications Ltd.

Vancouver's best events and celebrity functions are all archived here. Vancouver pubs, clubs, nightclubs, gala events and fundraisers are included. Thanks for viewing.

Due to server capacity, you will not be able to access or click through to the larger photographs. With over 250,000 unique visits each month, our site would quickly exceed the amount of memory needed.

If you would like to receive a copy of a photograph, then please send an email and enclose the details of the event, the date, the name, the photo number and the names of the people in the photograph. Also, for security reasons, I prefer not to email copies of pictures to anyone other than the people who are actually in the photo. Thanks.

Coun. Jim Green and friend Helena Cynamon, who works in the movie industry, chatted with other VIPs in the garden before dinner.
