Reason to Love Vancouver #17: City Streets are Looking Much Brighter

We’re painting the town red (and yellow, and blue, and pink).

For proof that the irritating “No Fun City” moniker can finally be buried, look to the colour-soaked facades of Mount Pleasant, Strathcona or, heck, even once-dreary alleyways downtown. Between the Vancouver Mural Festival painting the town and More Awesome Now—the laneway “activation” that pink-washed an alley near Granville and Hastings—our civic landscape is more vibrant than ever. And that’s not just because of fresh paint; props are also due to projects like Public Disco that are bringing the party to our newly spruced-up streets.
