Spring brings with it the 8th annual Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival April 3-28 sponsored by the DVBIA. Burrard SkyTrain station’s flowering cherries take centre stage during the Festival’s kick-off event at the free lunchtime Cherry Jam Downtown concert Thursday April 3. Bring your lunch and sit on Bing Thom Architects’ newly designed waterproof cherry petal mats.
Back by popular demand is Shiamak Davar Vancouver Performance Team’s Blossom Bollywood dance on the Vancouver Art Gallery Plaza on April 12. And new this year is the Cherry Heritage Walk through Coal Harbour (in Mandarin) on April 3.
