Summertime is when the weather is beautiful and Vancouver really shines. I went to some of the street parties this year for the first time — Italian Day and Car Free Day on Commercial Drive and Khatsalano Street Party in Kits. There were so many things to see, eat, and enjoy. There was live music and demonstrations, food trucks and vendors. People brought their kids, their pets, their grandparents. It’s a really great way to get out and be a part of something fun in the community!
