I'm hoping to get out for this this year. Missed the last few due to work :(

I want to get some good firework pics as well :D

Agreed that you have to show up early, it has ALWAYS been a gong show for this event. I remember a few years ago, went to Kits at about 3pm and just chilled out :)

So ya, show up early if you want a good comfy spot :D

If the tide is going out then there is always space up front :D I have gone just before it starts and got front row seats in English Bay. Just cruize right on up to the front. It was incredible to see them so from up close. No flash and then the bang no delay to speak of compared to Kits or the north shore.
My G/F gets so wound up for them .....who needs kids :)....We see them every year and enjoy them......more so if you bring a radio ( that always draws a bunch of thaks etc. after the show) as most people dont get to hear the music. And that is a big part of it :cool:

Yea but did you watch them at all :D. .....Yep you get a few hundred thousand people in the area and your bound to see some yahoo's. I lived by science world when the Indy was still going on . We left on that weekend for some piece and quiet :eek:.
Myself I enjoy them as well as many thousands ,of others do. Mostly they are a good thing, There are always the spoilers .( trouble makers ) ...and the nimby's .:p.-- j/k ;). In 10 days or so you won't even be able to tell they were even there .......with any luck.:cool:

Sorry, but being as I live in the suburbs, I've gotta say that there is just as many 'yahoos' living in Vancouver. :rolleyes:

when i first moved here i watched them maybe five years in a row ... but i do not watch them anymore ... i want them gone or moved to the suburbs ... enough polluting the west end already ... i am not truly bitter as it may sound, but i do not care for the fireworks after so many years :O) and i could easily go up to my roof deck and watch them, but after i have seen fireworks again and again over 40 years, they are not too exciting for me ...

if you took my comment as a direct insult to you, that was not my intention ... but it is NOT the west end residents that ruin the fireworks, it is the people that come down for them ...
