Surrey’s Massive Vaisakhi Nagar Kirtan Goes Off Without A Hitch

“No arrests. No crime,” Surrey RCMP Cpl. Scotty Schumann said of this year’s parade day. “Three hundred and fifty thousand people participated peacefully in this fantastic family community event.”

SURREY — While many are talking about the massive crowd of 350,000 plus (some critics are saying how did they measure this) but the biggest thing to cheer was that there weren’t any serious issues, other than one Facebook post about a woman hitting another woman for spilling water on her precious suit, and that Parade of this massive size had no crime, according to the RCMP.

“No arrests. No crime,” Surrey RCMP Cpl. Scotty Schumann said of this year’s parade day. “Three hundred and fifty thousand people participated peacefully in this fantastic family community event.”

It’s one of the largest such celebrations in the world outside India marking the Sikhs’ new year.

This year’s event, also known as the Surrey Khalsa Day Parade, featured 19 floats.
