Thousands of people rang in the new year in downtown Vancouver Monday at Concord’s NYE Vancouver, and Global BC was live on location at Jack Poole Plaza.

This year’s New Year’s Eve event featured a free outdoor party with a DJ stage and a series of colourful roving performers, while an indoor party included several interactive exhibits for kids of all ages.

It all culminated in the massive, 10-minute long fireworks display that lit up the Vancouver skyline and the water outside Canada Place. More than 16,000 effects were lit off during the show, which had the enormous crowd spellbound.

This was the fourth year in a row for the Concords NYE Vancouver event.
