Cherry blossom festivals on Naver maps

Naver Map has a cute new feature just in time for Cherry Blossom season. Just search "벚꽃" and the map will zoom in to where the nearest cherry blossom festival to your location is being held, along with providing supplementary info about it. Zoom out, and you can see several around the country, with cute pink icon labels.

I got slight different results when searching in English for "cherry blossom festival"

I can't believe the cherry blossoms are already in full bloom in my neighborhood. Seems pretty early this year, but I guess really it's not that unusual.

Here's a map of the blossom times, though it's fully out of date by now:
