Downtown Toronto’s Khalsa Day Parade 2.0

Thousands of sikhs crowd Downtown Toronto’s Nathan Phillips Square in celebration of Khalsa Day. Also known as Vaisakhi, it celebrates the Sikh new year and founding of the Khalsa order of Sikhism. One of the largest parades in Canada - and I got to capture a piece of it! 

Check out the video from this amazing display of a colourful community :-)

I also had my turban tied (thanks to the awesome folks at Simply Sikh)! So I looked completely different, and it took a while for people to recognize me…which has it’s benefits (haha)!

PS. I just realized…I did one of these last year too! I use an app called Timehop that reminds me of an “on this day” every day using my various social media accounts. An awesome way to keep your time capsule in check. 

Cheers,

Amar
