The wet weather did nothing to dampen Vancouver’s spirits on Sunday as people soaked in the city’s biggest car free day.

That’s right, pedestrians took over Main Street yesterday as stores and stages lined the beloved thoroughfare between Broadway and 30th.

But don’t worry if you weren’t able to experience the event for yourself, because social media is flooded with some fantastic images from Main Street Car Free Day 2017

We did it. Main Street Car Free Day happened. I am honestly glad it’s over but I am super happy that it happened and I’m going to do it all again next year. I couldn’t have done it without the team, and that team was amazing, rock solid, fun! As they said on AoS, a team that trusts is a team that triumphs and these guys trusted in each other and trusted on me and they made the festival triumph. So, thank you all, bug now imma stop helping organize street festivals before my legs actually fall off. #mainstreetcfd #carfreeday #vancity #dreamteam
