VANCOUVER – 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.

“We have a weather committee and they’ve been working very hard,” laughed event co-founder Carmen Mills.

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.
