PhotoTO: Car Free Day

As part of International Car Free Day, organized in Toronto by Streets are for People, participants took over parking spaces along Queen Street West on Sunday and held concerts, played games, and generally had fun in their rented spots. The band Mr Something Something held a well-attended pedal-powered performance opposite Trinity Bellwoods Park. At 6 p.m., everyone joined together for a parade to Old City Hall, meeting up with the Bells on Bloor bikers at Spadina Avenue. At Queen and University, the parade circled the intersection, stopping traffic in all directions for about ten minutes before continuing on its way.
On Monday, Yonge Street between Dundas and Shuter streets was closed down for further celebrations, with street scrabble, demonstrations, buskers, and free concerts in Dundas Square.
