Celebrate the Night Community Event and Fireworks

The event takes place in late October at the Memorial Peace Park in Maple Ridge. In 2022, Celebrate the Night ran from 6:00 pm until 8:00 pm on October 21st. The event happened again in 2023 on Friday, October 20th.

Celebrate the Night is a free family-friendly event that typically features pretty lights, lanterns, craft activities, a costume contest and food trucks. There is also live entertainment to enjoy each year. A top highlight at the event is usually the fireworks which blast off at the end of the night. Unfortunately, due to the local fire ban and weather concerns, the fireworks didn’t happen in 2022.

Activities that happened during the event in 2023 included a Halloween costume contest, roving entertainment and a carousel ride. Food trucks are available too, offering deep-fried tornado potatoes, mac and cheese, mini donuts and ice cream, to name but a few.



Celebrate the Night features live entertainment. In 2022, there were performances by the Raincity band at 6:00 pm and 7:15 pm. Other entertainment was provided by roving circus and theatre performers from NZR Productions and Candy Bones Theatre.

There were multiple lights displays to check out at the event in 2022, from lanterns to shadow and light murals. There were also interactive displays and face painting opportunities for all. The 2022 event featured pumpkin displays and spooky supernatural stories. Since the fireworks didn’t happen, new activities were added such as a playground with LED lights and a fun photo booth. There was also a Halloween Games Alley with carnival-style games.

The fireworks finale in 2023 started at about 8:00 pm. The display usually comes with a soundtrack timed with the fireworks. You could listen to that soundtrack even if you weren’t at the event itself by tuning into 89.3FM on the radio.

Tips & Advice

Below are some suggestions to help you make the most of your visit to Maple Ridge and the Celebrate the Night event:

TIP #1: Memorial Peace Park is located in the heart of Maple Ridge at 22407 Dewdney Trunk Road. There is a fair bit of parking in the area, but not a ton. Try to arrive early and be prepared to walk a bit.

TIP #2: The event happens rain or shine, so, if it looks like rain, still go, but remember to take your umbrella and waterproof gear.

TIP #3: Make a day out of your trip and explore the area. Kanaka Creek Regional Park is close by and Alouette Lake and Golden Ears Provincial Park aren’t too far away either. All are beautiful this time of year and great places for a walk.

TIP #4: If you like fireworks, check out Central Spark in Burnaby’s Central Park on the Friday before Halloween. There’s also the Richmond Fireworks Festival at Minoru Park on Halloween night. Both venues are accessible by SkyTrain.
