The annual Vancouver Vaisakhi parade has been cancelled due to concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic.
The parade was scheduled to happen on April 18, 2020. Each year this celebration draws over 150,000 spectators.
It’s the first time in the event’s 41-year history that it’s been cancelled. Organizers said they look forward to everyone’s participation and enjoyment in next year’s parade.
