Vancouver Police say the night was calm with only one arrest

Hundreds of thousands of people poured into Vancouver’s streets for Japan’s Honda Celebration of Light fireworks show.

According to Vancouver Police Cpl. Jason Doucette, the crowd of 250,000 was “calm and patient” and remained well behaved.

“We did not have any serious incidents reported,” said Doucette.

While the VPD are still tallying final numbers, the most prevalent issue was alcohol at the beach: police had to pour out liquor 82 times. Offence-wise, four tickets were issued for drinking in public, one for smoking and one arrest was made for a breach of the peace.
