Vancouver Vaisakhi Parade 2017

Hundreds of thousands came out to celebrate the harvest festival that also marks the New Year and the birth of the Khalsa in 1699.
 
The annual Vaisakhi Nagar Kirtan celebrated with much joy and vigour in Vancouver once again displayed the generosity and togetherness of the Sikh community. 
 
Hundreds of thousands came out to celebrate the harvest festival that also marks the New Year and the birth of the Khalsa in 1699.
 
Individuals ranging from politicians to business men to children were all in high spirits that the festival brings along and started gathering at the Ross Street Gurudwara in the morning. 
 
After everyone submitted their prayers at the Gurudwara, Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji left the temple’s gates on top of a float headed by a contingent of individuals dressed in traditional Sikh warrior attire, including five individuals portraying the ‘Panj Pyare.’ The Nagar Kirtan procession followed the holy book with floats of varying sizes and colours, decorated vehicles and parade attendees.
