Surrey, BC: Surrey’s Vaisakhi Nagar Kirtan broke attendance records Saturday, drawing a gathering of almost 500,000 people, including visitors from all over the world.

“Beginning before 9 a.m., 20 floats moved slowly through Newton, starting and ending at the Gudwara Sahib Dasmesh Darbar […] late in the afternoon. The sunshine brought huge crowds to the streets, where families and businesses set up tents to offer free food and stages […]”, notes a report in Vancouver Sun.

Buses of people from Calgary, Edmonton, Seattle and even California travelled to Surrey to celebrate. Surrey’s Khalsa Day Prade is considered to be largest gathering of the Sikhs on any event held outside the land of Punjab or the Indian subcontinent.
