The Honda Celebration of Light fireworks festival's live music, food trucks, and vendors are relocating, the organisers announced on Wednesday.

According to an official description, the new festival hub, which "functions as the heart of the event," will be located in Morton Park and open from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. on each fireworks date.

At Second Beach and Sunset Beach, previous exhibits featuring food and music were set up.

For the first time since the start of the pandemic, the annual fireworks festival will go place later this month, with organisers celebrating the event's 30th anniversary - a milestone that would have otherwise been accomplished in 2020.

According to Paul Runnals, executive producer of Brandlive, "B.C.'s most cherished event is returning with a bang." "The enthusiasm happening all across English Bay is something you won't want to miss."

On July 23, 27, and 30, onlookers will be awed by the displays of Spain's Pirotecnia Zaragozana, Canada's Midnight Sun Fireworks, and Japan's Akariya Fireworks along Vancouver's waterfront.

The Red Bull Air Show and Canadian Snowbirds are two additional festival highlights that will return this year. While the Snowbirds will only execute a formation flyover on July 27, the former will perform on each of the three nights.

Tickets are still available, and VIP and family-friendly viewing options are available.

The event's planners have warned that road restrictions would also return to Vancouver's West End, with restricted access for visitors beginning at 7 p.m. each day. Starting at 9 a.m., Beach Avenue will also have a bike lane diversion and a partial traffic closure.
