Hey, lovelies! Spring has finally sprung, and you know what that means – it’s time to get out and soak up all the fun events happening in our beautiful city of Edmonton. From food to outdoor adventures, there’s something for everyone to enjoy this April. So grab your crew, put away your winter coat, and let’s spring into the excitement!

Take a walk to find cherry blossoms

Did you know? Edmonton has its fair share of cherry blossoms. For a brief and magical moment, you can find delicate pink and white blossoms at just a few spots in the city. But here’s the catch: this floral fantasy is oh-so-fleeting. The trees will only bloom for about a week – blink, and you might miss it! Save these spots for when the season starts.
