If you are coming during March and April, Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival is from March 26~April 22. You can get the information from website
I would recommend you the "Cherry Jam Downtown" (Burrard SkyTrain Station, March 31) and "Sakura Days Japan Fair"(VanDusen Botanical Garden, April 2&3).

As well, here are some great spots you must to visit:

*Seawall (from Canada Place to Standnley Park)
*Stanley Park (including Vancouver Aquarium, Raccoon Row)
*Granville Island
*Museum of Anthropology (UBC)
These places are easy to go by skytrian+bus. You can make a plan on skytrain website to get how to go. website
Also, it would be fun to bicycle in Stanley when the weather is nice. There are some cycle rental stores at Denman Street.

*Grouse Mountain
*Capilano Suspension Bridge
*Whistler
Those will be more convenient to go with tours.

Have fun!
