Cherry Blossom season in Vancouver will bring out the ‘cheer’y in anyone, and especially with the terrific weather the city has been having. While the official Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival runs from April 4th to 30th some trees have already been in bloom for a few weeks. There are so many events taking place we have compiled a few of our top choices here.
