bil fri

Today was the annual car free commercial drive celebration. The streets were closed to cars and instead were filled with pedestrians, bikes, food vendors, drummers and dancers. It was great to see a broad sampling of the community, and surrounding areas come together for a great time. The crowd was full of energy and there was a lot to see. Apparently last year 24,000 people made it out to the festivities. I'm interested to see what the count was for today! Very fun! I will really miss this neighbourhood when I'm living in Sweden.

bil fri means free of cars in Svenska.
