Ce Soir Noir brought a friendly crowd of people all dressed in black to the Downtown Eastside waterfront.
Here's how the event was promoted on Facebook: "This is no chic-picnic. It’s actually not fancy whatsoev. It’s also free. We are here to invite you to a democratic gathering in Crab Park on Tuesday, the 25th of August. The task at hand is simple – dress head-to-toe in your blackest clothes, grab some friends, some food and beverages, a big blanket and set yourself down for the evening for peaceful resplendence in one of Vancouver’s finest parks."
Intrepid photographer Andrew Chin brought back these images from the event.
