FEATURED EVENTS IN YOUR CITY

Canada celebrated its 152 birthday on July 1st, and Vancouver had a pretty great dance party on the streets downtown to celebrate it!

The party was organized by VYVE, a sober-party enthusiast group formerly known as Party4Health, and took place at 10 pm on Monday at Jack Poole Plaza.

The epic party featured giant huddles, crowdsurfing, dance runways, and sing-a-longs, all in an attempt to unify Canadians in freedom and celebration — without drugs and alcohol.

“There’s no other night better than Canada Day to throw a giant street party,” said Jacques Martiquet, who describes himself as the Chief Party Scientist at VYVE.

“Everyone is bursting with national spirit. We’re going to ignite this spirit, because the City of Vancouver’s entertainment won’t do it,” continued Martiquet.

What made this annual VYVE celebration so unique was that it was completely booze and drug free.

All that was needed was maple syrup, limbo, happy people and of course the Canadian spirit, and it was the ultimate Canadian celebration.

The street party made their way all the way from Canada Place to Granville Street, with several detours along the way. Hundreds of people danced, crowd surfed and sang their way through the streets, alleyways and even the Canada Line.

The mission of VYVE to spark happiness, joy and fun through good old fashioned human connection and friendship.
