One of Vancouver's biggest street parties is taking place today (June 26) on the city's West Side.
Greek Day festivities continue along West Broadway from Macdonald to Blenheim streets until 9 p.m.
The food is fabulous, of course, and there's also no shortage of children's entertainment, including mini golf, an inflatable slide, and various musical events.
At today's celebration, I ran into the local NDP MLA for the area, David Eby, whose constituency office is on West Broadway.
This weekend, his colleagues are holding a planning conference in Kamloops, so I asked why he wasn't there.
"I wouldn't miss Greek Day," Eby replied with a smile.
I showed up just after the event began at 11 a.m., and I'm guessing the crowds will get much larger by late afternoon and into the evening.
In case you're wondering, the main stage at Greek Day is at the corner of West Broadway and Balaclava Street.
Below, you can check out some snapshots I took while strolling down the street.
