After this dark, wet and snowy winter, cherry blossoms are one of the first cheerful signs of the fast approaching spring season. Unlike last year's early bloom, the stars of the 2017 Cherry Blossom Festival should be arriving on time, right about now!
Vancouver's signature springtime event wakes the city up from winter hibernations with an explosion of around 41,000 blossoming cherry trees around the city. April marks the month of the blossom and will feature over 20 public, mostly free, arts and cultural community events.
So stuff your winter coat away and get out your camera because the Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival is here again!
