Kitsilano Block Parties

Saturday, June 20th & Sunday, June 21st 2015

Kitsilano does something different for Car Free Day. Instead of closing off a major street, people throughout Kits host block parties with their neighbours.

ChalkThe block parties are as individual as the people who pull them together.

Some have dancing, some have music, some have couches, chairs and carpets in the middle of the street and some share chips and a drink together!


All of them are a fun, relaxing chance to hang out
with the people who live in your neighborhood.
