With over 40,000 cherry trees lining the streets of Vancouver, it's time to celebrate the pink blossoms that dominate the neighbourhoods in the springtime. The Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival runs from the end of March to the middle of April each year and offers a calendar full of opportunities.
My favourite is the Bike The Blossoms bike ride with is a free tour that starts out by Trout Lake and winds through of Vancouver's blooming neighbhourhoods, led by a Vancouver Parks Board arborist.
You can also lace up your walking shoes and take part in the guided tour, Tree Talks and Walks. This walk actually starts before the official kick off to include some of the neighbourhoods that are planted with early blooming varieties. The dates haven't been set yet, so check the site for dates and times. Enjoy.
