Peak Bloom on May 4!--High Park "Sakura Hanami" Cherry Blossom Walk (free event)

NOTES:

******

1: The date "May 4 (this Saturday)" is finally finalized:) (I called the High Park Nature Centre and this weekend is the best timing for a visit. It is going to be sunny according to weather forecast. See you all soon!)

2. We have 250+ RSVPs--I expect a big turnout. Should be fun:)

3. My friends will be there co-hosting this event too, and we'll get volunteering tour guides from the High Park Nature Centre to help us as well.

4. We may meet and join another photography group and take some photos together. (They have around 35 attendees.)

5. I'll post my mobile number below as a comment so that you can find the group or get assistance when needed.

See you all there this Saturday!

Chris

Cherry blossoms 2013

This has been a popular event for the third year of my groups--we typically has only one weekend for cherry trees to be in full blossom in Toronto--DON'T MISS OUT or wait for next year!!


This date (May 4) is finalized!!

Agenda:

2:00 pm: Meet and Greet

2:15 pm: The walk #1 + photo taking begin, for a couple of hours

4:00 pm: Gather at the restaurant again.

Get a couple of table if we can and get something to eat/drink or just to have a chat or ice cream.

 

To find us, I'll be at the benches outside the Grenadier Restaurant at 2 pm and in the same restaurant around 4 pm (Centre of High Park). If you face the restaurant, the benches are on the left hand side across from the restaurant.

I will send an e-mail with my cell phone number to members signing up for the event in case anyone needs to call me for assistance or to find the group.

Note 1: It may be very hard to park inside the park (near the restaurant). Please be prepared to park outside and walk for 15 minutes to the restaurant.

Note 2: The restaurant will have very long lines that day (even for the lady's room). You may bring something for yourself (if its not too heavy for you) and sit under a cherry tree for picnic.

      My original plan was to set off at around 2:15-2:30 pm in one group only. Due to traffic and parking, many people were late, so we improvised and formed three groups to serve as many members as we could...

    It was nice meeting everyone and revisited the park.

    We had three groups setting out to blossoms at around 2:30 pm, 3:15 pm (with a tour guide), and close to 4 pm. After 4:30 pm, all three groups gathered at the Cafe one after another till around 6 pm. Big thanks to Walter, Andy, and William for lending a helping hand and led the groups.

    I got many phone calls & answered 30+ messages, many calleds/senders of which found and joined the groups. No matter whether you did, hope you enjoyed the nature beauty and welcome to post your photos here.

    If you haven't visited the High Park, the next few days are the last chance for beautiful blossoms.

    Cheers,

    Chris

    I did go, although I could not find a group. The blossoms were lovely and so was the afternoon.
