Apr 28 2023, 6:24 pm

While we may not have the pretty cherry blossom trees that bloom every spring in places like Vancouver, Edmonton is home to its own fruit-bearing trees that are just as stunning once they blossom.

Every year around the May Long Weekend, Edmonton’s crab apple trees put on a pretty incredible natural display. Not only are they a treat to look at, but those photos also look pretty good on the ‘gram, too.

Here are some areas in Edmonton where you can check out those beautiful blooming flowers this spring:
