Who’s ready for spring? I definitely am, especially after this week of warmer temperatures and the sun showing its face again for more than just 2 days in a row! When you walk around you hear the birds chirping and you see the trees blossom, flowers starting to bloom.
There’s one way to celebrate the signs of spring this weekend and that is at the big picnic of the cherry blossom festival in David Lam Park. ‘This event honours the Honorable Dr. David Lam’s donation of cherry trees and celebrates friendship as we are all friends under the cherry tree.’ Bring your picnic blanket and some snacks to share, sit under the beautiful blooming cherry trees and enjoy music among other entertainment in the park. There’ll be food vendors around in case you don’t want to bring any food yourself. Even though the last week treated us well weather wise, I advise to check out the forecast before you leave the house on Saturday since it can change within minutes. It’s best to be prepared for all kinds of scenarios here in Vancouver! So, make sure to bring a rain jacket and proper shoes with you. If it gets too rainy we won’t sit on the grass, but we’ll still enjoy the event for a while until we maybe find another place to hang out at that’s warm and dry. I can’t wait to celebrate with you! 🙂
If this event is not enough for you and you want to go chase more cherry trees here’s a cool article for you to check out that tells you about 21 fantastic spots to enjoy the cherry blossoms all over Vancouver: https://dailyhive.com/vancouver/where-to-see-cherry-blossoms-in-vancouver
Allergic to cherry trees? Maybe try doing something indoors this weekend. 😉 How about watching an Ice Hockey game at the Rogers arena? This Sunday there’s a game between the Vancouver Canucks and LA Kings. Definitely something you should experience while you’re here. I’d say Ice Hockey is one of the National sports in Canada, super popular! There sometimes are fights on the ice, broken hockey sticks, lots of action, fun entertainment during the breaks and an amazing atmosphere in the stadium that you don’t want to miss. Even people who I’ve spoken to that don’t know much about Ice Hockey, really enjoyed the games, so why not give it a try and see how you like it?
You better do it fast as well, there’s not going to be a lot more games in Vancouver this season, the last one is on April 8th, which is next week! So, take a buddy and go watch a game. 🙂
Whatever you decide to do, enjoy your weekend exploring the city and tell me all about it next Pub Night! 🙂
See you then,
