Car Free Day 2018

Thousands of people came out to flood  Vancouver’s Main Street this past June 17 to bask in the sun and celebrate Car-Free Day.

As is our annual tradition, The Vancouver Skateboard Coalition once again set up a mini ramp and a selection of obstacles and ramps on the hill of 14th and Main with the goal of promoting skateboarding, stoking people out and sharing the love of riding on 4 wheels.

Thanks to Michelle Pezel and Jeff Cole for helping to coordinate the day, to all those who helped set-up and take down and move the ramps, and to everyone who came out throughout the day to lend a hand in keeping the good times and the love of skateboarding flowing.

Next year the VSBC wants to make our contribution to Main Street Car Free Day even better. We will be looking throughout the year for more obstacles and volunteers,  so let us know if you want to be involved.
