Italy took home top honours at the annual Celebration of Light beachside fireworks festival, beating out Vietnam and Brazil in the three-night competition.

About 400,000 spectators hit Vancouver's coastline and waters for the performance Saturday night. Organizers say they're planning even bigger for 2013.

Details will be announced in September.
