Spring in Vancouver is underway. The pink carpet of cherry petals covering city sidewalks is a dead giveaway. With more fair weather days, it’s going to be harder and harder to commit to activities beyond impromptu sunshine frolics and lazy patio lounging. But we’ll try and tempt you nonetheless.
April in Vancouver brings a barrage of fun things to do including the Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival, April 4-30, with the allstar event-within-an-event, the Sakura Days Japan Fair April 6-7. Sakura Days features a stunning amount of tasty Japanese cuisine, from bento to street food like takoyaki (octopus batter balls) and Japadogs, alongside cultural demos.
Other must-attends? Vancouver Fan Expo, which summons an unlikely cast of Lord of the Rings, Walking Dead and Battlestar Galactica celebs to the waterfront Vancouver Convention Centre, April 20-21. You or someone you know is probably participating in Canada’s largest 10k race, the Vancouver Sun Run, April 21. And let’s not forget the Vancouver’s glamourous green style event, Eco Fashion Week, April 22-24.
