August will be filled with summer fun every weekend – two blocks of it, in fact!
Beginning next weekend on August 6, the Granville Promenade will close two blocks of Granville Street from Smithe to Helmcken every Saturday and Sunday of the month.
The free street party runs from 1:00 PM to 7:00 PM with live music, street entertainment, patios, art, and markets.
Weekend commuters may want to keep an eye on the festivities and join in or stay away.
Each street party has its own theme. Here’s the schedule:
