Into Full Bloom - Marketing Report 2007 (right click to download PDF)
Thanks to everyone for your enthusiasm and participation in the second annual Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival to help us celebrate the spectacular blossoming of Vancouver’s 36,000 ornamental flowering cherry trees. Special thanks to all the sponsors, community partners and dedicated volunteers who helped make the festival happen and to the Cherry Scouts for advising the festival when their neighborhoods came into bloom so that everyone could catch the amazing show the cherries put on for us this Spring! We greatly appreciated all the cultural organizations who came under the festival banner with theme related special events to enliven the festivities.
Congratulations go out to Marie Yeo of Coquitlam on winning the BC Blossom Watch Photo Contest and the grand prize of return air fare for two to Tokyo, and Danielle Scott of Vancouver for winning the free draw of two tickets to Japan at Cherry Jam Downtown both compliments of sponsor, Japan Airlines.
This year the city-wide celebration was a triumph because the festival was a true happening, an exuberant coming-together of nature and humanity.
Welcome to the Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival!
