International Car Free Day is celebrated in places all around the world. It is a day when people discover what it is like to live without cars and motor vehicles filling their streets.
We asked, what would you and your friends do in the streets if there was no danger from traffic and you were allowed to do whatever you liked?
So many wonderful pieces work were sent in. We wished we had more prizes:
