Hey there. I am from Vancouver....

Vancouver blows dead mules when it comes to New Years. There are no city sanctioned activities at all in the city...It is all up to you to find something to do within the community or network of friends you have developed. House parties and pubs is about the best you can manage. There are the occasional New Year's Raves, but I have aged out of that kind of thing, so can't help you.

Seriously, when the world celebrated the Millennium, EIleen Drennan, VPD police spokesman went on TV cautioning people not to congregate downtown or in large groups. There were no city sponsored fireworks or events of any kind in a ONCE IN A THOUSAND YEARS event.

Sorry to disappoint. Expect to hear from Salmon Boy after this.

I recommend doing a club crawl for new years in downtown vancouver!
It's probably still too early to get tickets but you should definitely check out these websites where you can get tickets... probably in October.
