Car Free Day Vancouver 2016

Add a Comment by Rebecca Bollwitt

Car Free Day is here and being that Vancouver is so enthusiastic about the event, it actually lasts for two full days in some neighbourhoods. This is your chance to hop off the sidewalk and stroll the streets of your community, or one you’d like to visit for the day, to experience live music, food, and the culture that makes each of these areas so charming.
