TRAVELLER - Sikh Festival in Yuba City

Yesterday’s show was an exotic experience but close to home—the Sikh Festival in nearby Yuba City, California which attracts 100,000 faithful from California and out of state. Infact, it’s the largest gathering of Sikhs outside their place of origin, northern India and Pakistan in what is known as Punjab. It is the area’s breadbasket.
The 3-day festival includes fireworks, a large bazaar, a parade, temple worship and a free public feast to celebrate harvest.
This year’s Festival was Yuba City’s 50th. It also marked the 550th anniversary of the Sikh religion.
