Photos: Carnaval del Sol livens up Granville Street
There's a full-on street party in the downtown core this weekend.
That's because Viva Vancouver has created a traffic-free section along Granville Street for Carnaval del Sol.
The annual food, music, and arts fiesta takes place on Saturday (July 5) and Sunday (July 6) to conclude Latin American Week.
This year, the 600 to 800 blocks of Granville were set aside for the event.
The celebration came after Latincouver held its annual Inspirational Latin Awards ceremony on July 2.
Among those honoured were writer, director, and actor Carmen Aguirre, SFU lecturer and Science in Action founder Sophie Lavieri, Angels Are There founder Patricia Cruz, Faraway and Latin Runners founder Lluvia Meneses, and periodontist Scott Yamaoka.
Below, you can see some snapshots of what was taking place today in downtown Vancouver.
