Here’s a fun spring experience for flower lovers to check out. For three nights at the end of the month, Vancouver’s David Lam Park is transforming into a magical, illuminated experience, which means the park’s blooming cherry blossoms will come alive with bright, glowing lights and colours.

Aptly named Blossoms After Dark, the event is part of the Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival, which celebrates one of the most beautiful times of the year with a variety of live performances and arts & culture events, including the Sakura Days Japan Fair and the annual Big Picnic.

At Blossoms After Dark, visitors can stroll through the park and enjoy live music, mystical “bubble performances,” LED flow dancing, and themed eats like glow-in-the-dark cotton candy and pink popcorn.
