KLM Salutes Team France At Vancouver’s Celebration Of Light

KLM Royal Dutch airlines welcomed spectators in full airline regalia at the exclusive YVR observation deck as team France took centre stage at the Honda Celebration of light in Vancouver last night.The Honda Celebration of Light is Vancouver's biggest tourist event, and the largest offshore fireworks competition in the world, attracting up to 400,000 spectators per night.The three day event kicked off last week as team USA performed on Saturday, and last night team France lit up the sky with an impressive fireworks display beginning by showcasing the country’s national colors of red, white and blue.As guests cheered on in the YVR observation deck, the exclusive lounge area felt like a simulated aircraft experience, as KLM staff came up and down aisles in uniform, handing out airline branded sparkling glow sticks and pretzels like an airline crew in flight.2014 marks the 24th consecutive year of the event, which contributes over $39 million in tourism and hospitality spending in Vancouver each year.The Celebration of Light concludes on Saturday, as team Japan steps onto the stage.For more information, go to hondacelebrationoflight.com.
