There are countless cultural festivals that take place in Toronto, each one important to different cultures. The last Sunday in April, Sikhs gather to celebrate their New Year and the formation of their religion called the Khalsa day parade. It starts from the CNE grounds to Nathan Phillips Square.

This photograph captures an essence of the event. People are united celebrating this event in one of the largest cities in Canada. Immigrants are fortunate to be embraced in this country, Canada to celebrate this religion on such a grand scale.

I try my best to capture what I see every year. This year I saw freedom, smiling faces, and celebration of culture. Most of all, I see where I belong in my city.
