Its full name is Car-Free Vancouver Day and it happened last Sunday. We hadn’t been planning to go but stumbled in more or less accidentally and it was good fun. It gave me an excuse to take pictures of people; something I’m too shy to do except in a crowd.

The place—at least the Main Street location near our place—was jam-packed. There were a few merchants set up, doing a roaring trade, it looked like. I bet they’ll all be out next year.

Oh wow - is that a bassoon quartet? That's got to be rare, as bassoons were classed as an endangered instrument recently - not enough people want to play them! I'd have loved to hear that.
