Attendance records were shattered at this year’s Surrey Vaisakhi Parade, with nearly 500,000 people participating in the event.

20 floats made their way through Newton, starting and ending at the Gudwara Sahib Dasmesh Darbar temple.

The warm weather brought out massive crowds and saw families and businesses set up endless tents along the parade route. Not to mention, there was plenty of free food handed out and entertainment taking place.

In addition, for the first time ever, the parade was opened up by the Kwantlen First Nation. They welcomed the event to their unceded territory.

Last weekend saw the Vancouver Vaisakhi Parade take place and huge crowds came out to mark the beginning of the harvest season.

The mood was vibrant this weekend and a sea of capturing colours took over the streets of Surrey.

Photos and videos uploaded online show us how special this day really was.
