The earliest of the flowering cherries are starting to bloom and the Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival has launched “Birthday Blossoms” in celebration of our fair city’s quasquicentennial year.
You can celebrate Vancouver’s 125th anniversary and renew our city’s beautiful cherry tree heritage by purchasing one of 3,000 Birthday Blossom cherry trees that are available through the Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival. Trees ordered by March 29 will be ready for collection the first weekend in April – just in time for Vancouver’s 125th birthday on April 6, 2011.
With your help, Birthday Blossoms will increase the number of cherries in our city to over 40,000, and build a legacy for both residents and visitors to enjoy for the next 125 years.
Proceeds support the Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival, a charitable non-profit society dedicated to the education, celebration and preservation of cherry trees.
