Huge crowds swarm High Park for cherry blossoms

You know spring has arrived in Toronto when the cherry blossoms are in bloom. As the High Park sakura started to pop this weekend, thousands made the annual pilgrimage to witness one of the most beautiful signs of the season.

There were traffic jams at every entrance to the park, a DJ on hand for an outdoor dance party, countless selfies taken, and just a general frenzy over the cherry blossoms, which looked radiant behind all the mayhem.
