      The 13th annual Vancouver Dyke March has wound its way down Commercial Drive.

      Black Lives Matter activists were at the front of the line as grand marshals the procession travelled from McSpadden Park to Grandview Park.

      The festival continues there all day.

      You can also make it a two-fer by combining a stop at Grandview Park with a visit to Oppenheimer Park in the Downtown Eastside. That's where the Powell Street Festival continues through today and Sunday (July 31).

      Not only is there a tasty selection of food along the side streets, but artistic director Mark Takeshi McGregor has also livened up the programming for the 40th anniversary edition. One of the highlights is the Vancouver electronic band Chordophone with brothers Marcus and James Takizawa along with Adrian Verdejo.
