b-boyz styling & skaters flying

It was the 3rd Annual Livestock Block Party in historic Gastown today. DJ's spinning some awesome tracks, skaters showing off their moves on the ramp and b-boys and girls battling it out on the street. Lots of pretty people came out to what could be the final installment of Livestock's block party and BBQ. A Sunday afternoon well spent.

Local DJ's spinning the tracks to get the crowd going.

Check out the girl's sneaks. Wicked.

Love the combination of the purple plaid shirt and the bright blue sneaks.

This girl was wearing every single colour of the rainbow and she looked awesome. I think it's the hair matching the shoes that pulls the look together.

Guu was feeding the hungry crowd with yummy edamame and takoyaki.

Love this girl's dress. The dude's shorts are pretty rad, too.
This dude was quite the character.

One of the sponsors for the event.

B-boys getting ready to battle... sort of.

Check out the dude with the Tom Selleck mustache and the mullet wig. Love it!

I want this girl's hoodie.
A future b-boy in the making!
A few four-legged friends stopped by to check out the event (so cute!).
As part of the Livestock Block Party, Adidas, Livestock and V.I.A came together and organized a used sneaker drive. The sneaks will be distributed to the needy in the Downtown East Side through LifeSkills Centre and Portland Hotel Society. Adidas was very generous, starting off the sneaker drive by donating 175 pairs of brand new sneaks!
Lifeskills Centre is a resource centre for high-risk drug users in the Downtown East Side. The educational centre provides access to basic services such as laundry and showers and offers low threshold programs and classes.

Portland Hotel Society

The main goal of PHS is to promote, develop and maintain supportive affordable housing for adult individuals who are hard to house and at risk of homelessness due to their physical and/or mental heath, behavious, substance abuse and forensic history.
