Vancouver Car Free Day on Main St.

view of the crowd on Main St.

On Sunday I went to Main St. for Vancouver's car free day, it was an awesome event with great weather, live music, local artisans, community information booths, and a fabulous vibe of community spirit. The festival closed down streets in four communities this year including main street in an effort to encourage healthy communities, sustainable living and authentic cultural celebrations (woo that!)

One of the best things about the event was that it was attended by so many different kinds of people; hipsters, parents and kids, seniors, lots of dog walkers, craftster mavens, onlookers, hippies, hula-hoopers, tai-chi enthusiasts, typists, musicians and many more. I had a great time just strolling down the middle of the street, it sounds simple but it's pretty neat to walk down the middle of a normally busy street.

The Regional Assembly of Text ( more on them in a later post) had a letter
writing station along with a button workshop.

More on the event plus more pics in next post
