Luke and Anne Stack at the Vaisakhi Parade
The Okanagan Sikh Temple and Cutural Society celebrated the third annual Vaisakhi Parade on Saturday April 28th, 2013. Literally thousands of people gathered to celebrate. The Vaisakhi parade celebrates the founding of the Sikh religion as well as a celebration of the harvest in the Punjab region and marks the beginning a the new year. It was a festive atmosphere with much music, marching and visiting - and lots of food. This year, a marshal arts group from Surrey BC participated in the parade. As always, I was impressed with the generosity of many people as they provided everyone in attendance with lots of good food to eat. They even gave me a turban to wear - first one for me.
