* <do name="Canada Day Fireworks" alt="" address="" directions="" phone="+1 604-925-1912" email="[email protected]" fax="" url="" hours="July 1 only, 10:30pm-11pm" price="Free viewing from streets, premium Canada Place seating for a fee">Restarting an old tradition, there is a fireworks display after dark on Canada Day. In 2008, this was a coordinated two-barge show, one barge off Canada Place and the other off [[North Shore (British Columbia)|West Vancouver]].</do>
* <do name="Chinese New Year" alt="" address="" directions="" phone="" email="" fax="" url="" hours="" price="">Because there is such a strong Chinese population in the city, the Lunar New Year period is often one of the most exciting and colourful in the city. There is usually a parade in Chinatown and many of the public schools usually have a day off on Chinese New Year. You can also catch celebrations at Tinseltown mall (1 minute from Stadium Skytrain station), and in Richmond at the International Buddhist Temple. There, visitors can experience Chinese New Year festivities with traditional snacks and foods, auspicious flower arrangements, Chinese calligraphy, exciting raffles, and much, much more.</do>
* <do name="Vancouver Zombie Walk" alt="" address="" directions="" phone="" url="" hours="" price="" lat="" long="" email="" fax="">Usually either in the summer or near Halloween, anyone can choose to dress up and act as the living dead during this parade through Downtown. Although this has only been in Vancouver for about 2 years, thousands of people have already participated, and at least 500 people each year join in on this zombie walk. It is free, and mostly for plain fun, and is also an unofficial event. Each year, there is a set meeting spot. Everyone then walks throughout Downtown and up streets and parks all in one large group. Information on this event is usually found with a quick search on Google.</do>
