Would love a locals perspective on what is fun to do for New Years Eve in Vancouver. It is just me and a girl friend looking to enjoy several drinks, fireworks (if there are any) and maybe some live music. Look forward to your suggestions! Thanks, Sarah

Well, you've picked Canada's most boring city for NYE....This is the town where the Police Spokeswoman came on TV in December 1999 and told everyone they should stay in their homes and not congregate downtown. Not one firework went off for the Millenniumn (yes I am still angry about that)

There are no city organized fireworks. They used to have a First Night celebration downtown, but put a stop to that.

THe PNE used to have a big party for the end of the Year...Same with the convention centre. Truthfully, I'd find a popular disco, and spend the time there.

Sorry. ON the other hand, at 42, I am now old and may not know where the cool kids hang out anymore.

Being a good citizen I stayed home and IIRC passed out on the floor-lotsa fun eh?!

There's usually some info here
