This Father’s Day, one of Victoria’s largest festivals saw the city’s most popular street shut down to vehicle traffic, and open to families, musicians, local businesses, and revellers of all ages!

The Downtown Victoria Business Association’s (DVBA) fourth annual Car Free YYJ was an overwhelming success, spanning nine blocks on Douglas Street and attracting a whopping 40,000 visitors over the course of the day.

Check out these photos of the event:
