Quality Foods Festival of Lights Fireworks

Vancouver Island’s largest Fireworks show with music will be held in Nanaimo harbour during next year’s Nanaimo Marine Festival.

The show starts at about 10PM on Saturday

The fireworks are set off from the fishing pier and can be seen from both the land and the water. Hundreds of people on boats anchor in the harbour to watch.

Quality Foods has sponsored the light show for many years and they are back again this year.

The post-explosion bang is huge, but for an extra sonic contribution, 102.3FM, The Wave, will do a live musical simulcast. The radio station will have a vehicle and speakers on site for the thousands who gather at Swy-a-lana Lagoon, or find your favourite advantage spot and turn on your radio.
