The Daily Hive had a few words to share about this weekends festivities:
"The festival culminates on August 20 as Main Street shuts down between 7th Avenue and East 12th Avenue for one giant block party.  Here you can attend patio parties, BBQs, dance parties, a skateboard competition (behind Antisocial Skate Shop), East Van Bazaar behind F as in Frank, roller disco, art markets, and concerts sprinkled throughout the day and into the night.
This is not your grandparents’ Vancouver, and that’s a good thing."
