Yesterday, the city of Santa Monica hosted the third iteration of its popular Coast open streets festival. The car-free event opened about two miles of Santa Monica streets to walking, bicycling, and skating. The event featured plenty of music, dancing, art, and dovetailed with the season’s final Santa Monica Pier concert.

Participants shared event images using the hashtag #CoastSaMo.
