Car Free Day is a day when you guessed it, there are no cars. Streets are blocked off and you end up with a giant festival on the street. Each festival is different but they promote the ability to build a community which is not dependent on vehicles. The celebrations can include food, artisans, music, dancing, and fun spectacles such as street hockey and street performers. This year's Car Free Day is on June 16/17, 2012. As with the spirit of the event, use means of transport other than a car to get there.
