Reflections on the Yuba City Sikh Parade

A non-Sikh spectator of the Sikh Parade in Yuba City last weekend wrote a letter to the editor of the local Yuba City newspaper and comments on her experience during the event:

We did not understand the significance of the street sweepers in front of the first float, but judging by the very soothing chanting of the throng surrounding the float, we guessed it was for making the street holy. We were also impressed by how peaceful the entire event was. We have been spectators at many parades, and without fail, there is some jerk who ruins the fun for many. That was not the case at this event. It was, as one gentleman told me, “a different kind of fun.” He made my day.
