Vancouverites have two Vaisakhi Parades to choose from: the Vancouver Vaisakhi Parade happening on April 14, 2012, which attracts about 50,000 spectators, and the annual Surrey Vaisakhi Parade and Celebration on April 21, 2012, which attracts 80,000 – 200,000, making it one of the largest Vaisakhi parades outside India.
