The Nagar Kirtan Parade refers to the procession of Sikh Sangat (congregation) through the town singing holy hymns. The concept of a Nagar Kirtan is to bring the message of God to the doorstep of the community.

The Panj Piare (five beloved ones of the Guru) normally lead the procession of the Nagar Kirtan.

Police encourage motorists to practice caution and patience if driving in the area but use alternative routes wherever possible.
