My mom is celebrating her 80th birthday in Vancouver
on Aug 6. We just learned that it coincides with
the Celebration of Lights Festival and would love to take her
to see it since she loves fireworks!!
We have a big family of 30+ travelling from San Francisco
Bay Area for her birthday as a family vacation.
However, we have already planned a big
banquet for her in Richmond. Even if we have an early
start, we can only get out of Richmond at 9pm.
I know the fireworks start at 10.
Is there any way we can watch the fireworks, perhaps
not from the best spots?
We're willing to splurge to charter a bus transfer if
necessary so we can get to the vicinity quicker
and don't have to worry about parking.
Does anyone have any suggestion for a route
we should take that's not closed and allow us
to have a reasonable viewing spot after dropping off?
My mom won't be able to walk non-stop for 20 minutes
to get closer after being dropped off, but it may be possible for us to push her in a wheelchair if necessary if route
is not completely packed.
Is it even possible to leave Richmond at 9pm
and get close enough to any viewing spots?
Thanks in advance! It would be a perfect ending for the celebration!!
