Khalsa Day Buses

27 April 2014

nagarkirtanbuses_1The 315th Anniversary of the birth of the Khalsa was celebrated by thousands of Sikhs in Toronto with the Annual Nagar Kirtan from the CNE Grounds to City Hall. The GGSCF volunteers were again looking after the bus seva, managing 86 buses that shuttled members of the sangat from 17 different stops around the GTA to the event. The event was more challenging than usual with the Gardner Expressway closed in the morning. However with everyone’s cooperation, things went smoothly and everyone enjoyed the day. A couple of American tourists remarked they had never seen so much colour and people and inquired about the event and what was being celebrated. We also would like to acknowledge the bus company Attridge who sent one bus to Hamilton after their own local bus had left six people behind.
