Artists are painting the town every color imaginable for Vancouver's second Mural Festival taking place from Aug 7 to 12. Most of the murals are being painted in the Mount Pleasant area near Main Street, with this year's festival transforming an additional 50 walls to add to the 35 painted last year. You can view a map here. Artists from Vancouver and around the world are on the streets painting selected walls all week. The pictures above were taken in the lane just west of the Lee Building on Broadway and Main.

This new double decker bus was parked in the Canada Line Marine Station bus loop today. Will Translink be introducing these new buses into the system anytime soon? Last year it was reported that Translink was considering double decker buses for some long distance routes.
