Holiday drone show brought to you by Best Buy

Get ready for a brilliant spectacle! Best Buy is organizing the biggest drone show in Canada (and the first of its kind in Vancouver) on December 2nd and December 3rd at Christmas at Canada Place. If you live in the Lower Mainland, don’t miss out on the opportunity to be dazzled by hundreds of twinkling lights in the sky. Over 300 drones will take off and illuminate the night to tell a special holiday story. Watch amazing synchronized aerial choreography magically shift from one intricate holiday scene to another high above Vancouver’s inner harbour. Bright Skies with Best Buy is a unique, free eight minute drone show that creates lasting holiday memories: you, your family, and your friends will be talking about it for years to come!

Where: Christmas at Canada Place
When: December 2nd and 3rd at 6:00 p.m

If you can’t make it to the event, don’t worry you’ll still be able to experience the magic. Stay tuned because we will share a recording of the show to brighten up the holidays right inside your home.

Share memorable moments at Canada’s Great Bright North light display

On top of the drone show, Best Buy also partnered with Christmas at Canada Place to set up a light installation on the North Point of Canada Place. Walk down the Avenue of Trees and you’ll be greeted by a dazzling light display. Experience the bright lights with your loved ones and capture the magic of the season with share-worthy photo opportunities. The light installation will be on display for a month from the opening of Christmas at Canada Place on December 2nd until January 2nd.

Where: Christmas at Canada Place

Bright Skies powered by Best Buy and Canada’s Great Bright North light installation are produced in partnership with Microsoft and Intel.

From lifestyle and entertainment essentials to gifts for greater productivity and to level up your home, we’ve put together a list of some of the best gifts of the season so you can find the perfect present for everyone on your list.

Gifts for the person on the go

Inspiration can strike anywhere—that’s why a portable, powerful laptop such as the Microsoft Surface Laptop Go 2 is an essential for anyone who is always on the go. To spark productivity, pair it with noise cancelling Bluetooth headphones such as the Sennheiser MOMENTUM 4 so they can tune out the world and focus on what they’re into. When it’s time to go back online, help them stay in touch with fun, practical tech like the Google Pixel 7 Pro and the Google Pixel Watch.

Gifts for the gamer

The world is going virtual. This year, brighten up their play with the Meta Quest 2. This VR headset with touch controllers will unlock immersive play that will allow them to experience their games like never before. If your giftee likes to take their gaming with them, the portable Nintendo Switch console features a three-in-one design that will allow them to stay entertained and play their favourite games anywhere.

Gifts for the fitness and self-care enthusiast

If you have a someone on your list who loves fitness, spice up their workout routine with the Yu-mn smart jump rope. Not only does it offer a great cardio exercise, but it also tracks workout stats and progress so they can stay motivated. To help them relax their muscles and speed up recovery, consider getting them a massager such as the EZ-X premium percussion massage gun that boats 30 speeds. Finally, for self-care, the Dyson Supersonic hair dryer special edition Holiday 2022 is the ultimate gift to elevate anyone’s hair care routine.

Gifts for the home

Light up their lifestyle with devices that will elevate your giftee’s day-to-day. With the Breville Barista Express Impress, they will be able to make and enjoy specialty coffee drinks right at home. For music lovers, the Bose SoundLink Micro rugged wireless speaker will make any moment brighter with their favourite songs. No room is complete without the right lighting. Help them set the mood and create a colourful light display with the Twinkly strings/dots smart lights.
