VIVA Vancouver returns this summer as Robson Square and Granville Street transform into pedestrian paradises. Community events, performances, and unique attractions will occupy these busy downtown corridors (and more) from June 23rd until September 3rd.

Granville will be closed to traffic between Smithe and Hastings on weekends while Robson will be closed between Hornby and Howe everyday. Buses will be re-routed including the #5 Robson that will return to its detour route on Burrard and Pender, and #6 Davie that will have detour stops along Seymour and Howe.

Other community VIVA Vancouver events will include Hot Tubs on East 44th, a Liveable Laneway local art market near East 8th and East Broadway, and Street Murals in Marpole, the West End, and Mount Pleasant. Parallel Park will take over two parking spots on East 14th, providing street-side seating, and Mount Pleasant will glow with mobile projections.

Follow VIVA Vancouver on Twitter and Facebook to learn more about special events happening in these spaces from this weekend through to Labour Day.
