Waiting for the Canada Day 2011 fireworks

Canada's Day  is almost here again ...  and I can't wait to see the fireworks to start over Vancouver, in Burrard Inlet.  There are two-barge fireworks displays setup and ready to shoot, for the delight of all the persons who will wait for them on Kitsilano Beach, Jericho Beach, UBC shore, North Vancouver, West Vancouver, Coal Harbour and Stanley Park seawall.

Well, this will be the evening show.  The early morning of  July 1st 2011, like every year,  will bring special citizenship ceremonies with a lot of famous Canadians. Vancouver's people will sing "Oh Canada" at  noon and will celebrate close to Canada Place, in parks and in every important tourist destination of Vancouver.

As far as we are aware of typical city "hazards" on the crowded streets, we intend to enjoy the festivities at Canada Place and also, the Canada Day Parade which will be happening in the evening on Granville Island.

Last year we build the dwarfs house with the Canadian Flag waving at the entrance and we made a special miniature gardens for the celebrations. This year we intend just to relax with the family in the summer sun predicted for the weekend, no matter in which spot, enjoying the celebrations and the live shows, thinking about the Canadian traditions and why not, the freedom and happiness.

And, of course will finish the 1st of  July day enjoying one of the always amazing and magic fireworks shows (as we did many times, including  Vancouver's Celebration of Light 2010 Shows) - just waiting for dark!
