There is a big cherry blossom picnic in Yaletown this Saturday and it’s free to attend. 

David Lam Park was named in honour of the person who gifted hundreds of cherry trees to the city and people are invited to the park on that day to witness them in full bloom. 

It’s shaping up to be a whole day affair.
