The warm weather has made the famous Vancouver cherry blossom anxious to bloom.
That’s led to lots of excitement in the city right now about the blossoms, with forecasters predicting an early spring. Most of the blossoms you’re seeing right now are plum trees – it’s easy to be fooled! Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival Cherry Scouts report that they’ve arrived three weeks early - so enjoy the Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival pre-show!
As we watch to see how spring unfolds, check the website to see our best bloom predictions; so you can catch the wave of cherry blossoms downtown. Whenever the cherries bloom at Burrard SkyTrain Station, the Festival invites you to come out to celebrate the free Cherry Jam Downtown concert Thursday, April 2 - 12 noon to 1:30 p.m, sponsored by the DVBIA.
