Get your picnic basket ready! The Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival is proud to be presenting a new activity this year: a picnic under the cherry blossoms. O-Hanami (which means “flower-viewing” in Japanese) has been a tradition in Japan for centuries. Invite your friends, family and neighbors to have a picnic under cherry blossoms. Time and location of Cherry Blossom Picnics will be posted on the VCBF website.
