  • Darpan Cruiser: Vaisakhi Celebrations Surrey & Vancouver

Vaisakhi Celebrations, Vancouver

The DARPAN Magazine team participated in the vibrant Vaisakhi celebrations on two consecutive Saturdays. On April 13th, 2024, we attended the Vancouver Vaisakhi parade, which commenced at the Ross Street Gurdwara and followed along Main Street. This parade brought together thousands of people from various backgrounds, showcasing Vancouver's multicultural mosaic.

 

 

Vaisakhi Celebrations, Surrey

The following Saturday, April 20th, saw us in Surrey, where an impressive crowd of 550,000 people gathered to celebrate. It was a wonderful experience to see such a massive turnout, reflecting the area's strong community bonds and cultural richness. It was great to meet and interact with so many people during these events, and we are excited to share some pictures from both venues, offering a glimpse into these colourful celebrations.
