Pictures of the Day: Vaisakhi celebrations across America

This past weekend, the Sikh communities in several cities enjoyed Vaisakhi celebrations by holding annual Nagar Kirtans.  I’ve enjoyed seeing Sikhs celebrate so openly in their cities.

Below are photos from media reports about the Nagar Kirtans in Lansing, Michigan, New Orleans, Lousiana and New York, New York.
