Vancouver Pride 2008: The skies have cleared, perfect for fireworks

It's Saturday evening, and my friends and I have just walked from the Davie Street Village to our hotel, and the great news is that the skies have finally cleared and it is sunny in Vancouver. As evening turns into night, the temperature is dropping - so bring that lightweight sweater out tonight.

With Vancouver Pride 2008 festivities all around, it's easy to forget that the Celebration of Lights is also taking place this weekend on English Bay. Three to four countries compete each year, and tonight is the finale and when everyone finds out which country wins the dazzling fireworks competition. Thousands and thousands of people are expected on Beach Street and near English Bay to watch the fireworks, beginning at 10pm.
