Vancouver: Car Free Day

Hi all, here are some pics from "Car Free Day" in Vancouver yesterday. Essentially it is a day every summer where several prominent streets around the city get shut down to car traffic and turned into pedestrian malls with markets, music, performances etc. I believe people are trying to get this to become a more common occurence, such as during every Sunday throughout the summer. I went to the one on Commercial Drive.

Some info about the event:

My pics:

I didn't quite understand what the story was with this roller derby thing

One thing I loved was how many different bands there were playing all sorts of different styles of music representing a wide range of cultures

I'd say she was a fan of the music

This guy was great

He could pretty well balance anything anywhere

There was a little side street called the "Healing Garden" where there were a bunch of stalls setup to showcase alternative and new age "healing" techniques

This woman was getting some sort of smoke feathered onto her

There's nothing quite like a session of "sound healing"

More live music

Dinosaurs don't like freeways

Some jumprope action

Some intense dancin goin on

The end.

Thanks for the comments guys. I'm surprised to hear your comparison, pixel2008, but whether accurate or not I'll take it on behalf of the city as a compliment as I love the Notting Hill area of London. :)
