Car Free Day on Commercial Drive at Boulevard Skateshop

The best part of Car Free Day in Vancouver is the crowd, any gathering of more than 10 people turns into a protest/love in/skate session/freakfest, so I decided to head over to Commercial Drive last weekend, eat some BBQ and shoot photos, here are some pictures I made during the afternoon.

Skateboard madness:
Kevin Kelly the proprietor of Boulevard Skate Shop on Commercial Drive made his contribution to Car Free Day by putting up a ledge and blast ramp so that anyone with wheels underneath them(some without) could perform tricks and just generally cause a little chaos during the day. It never ceases to amaze that the bravest spectators are usually those holding a small child or fragile objects in hand, the seemed to feel like they must be as close to "the action" as possible, if anything you get some spectacular close calls.
