Local Sikhs build ties 1 turban at a time at fest

May 31, 2021

People at Promenade Park waited Sunday for members of the Sikh community to wrap fabric in vibrant colors – including red, orange, pink and blue – around their heads to form turbans.

This sharing of culture was part of Allen County's first Sikh Turban Fest, a three-hour event presented by Indiana Sikh Outreach Mission.

Its goal was simple: raise awareness about the Sikh identity, which people often misidentify, said Jesse Singh, the organization's founder.
