The 142nd birthday of the country was celebrated nationwide last Wed. I didn't enjoy much. I had to work and then I only went to Ambleside Park to watch fireworks. There were two places that the fireworks were performed: West Vancouver beach and beside Liongates Bridge. But it was really not what I was expecting. The beach and bays are huge and the sky could not be filled easily. That was why I was not really impresed.
Calgary's Canada Day firework is different though. It's usually performed over the Stampede Park ground and looks magnificent. It looks like that because it covers the area around completely.
Anyhow that was something that I wanted to try. I will check Downtown Vancouver's next year, if I'm still in B. C.
