Article - Car-Free Vancouver Day brings out 125,000 revellers

Vancouver Sun, June 15
Author: Denise Ryan

After weeks of rain, more than 125,000 Vancouverites followed the sun on Sunday and took over city streets at four festivals celebrating Car-Free Vancouver Day.

The event that started four years ago on Commercial Drive expanded this year to include three other venues - Denman Street in the West End, Main Street from 12th to 16th, and Kitsilano, where people on 21 blocks closed the streets and threw parties of their own, each capturing the flavour of their neighbourhood.
