P.G. Vaisakhi Draws Big Crowds
Prince George, B.C. – Around 3,000 people are estimated to have taken part in in the annual Vaisakhi celebration in Prince George today.
It drew Sikhs from across B.C., Alberta, and even as far away as England.
Prior to the start of the parade spectators were treated to a display of Sikh martial arts.
The parade departed the Guru Nanak Darbar Sikh temple on Davis Road and wound its way to CN Centre where thousands enjoyed a selection of Indo-Canadian foods and music.
The day included speeches from many dignitaries including Prince George-Mackenzie Liberal MLA Mike Morris.
“It’s my pleasure to attend Vaisakhi here,” he said. “It’s a great indication of the cultural diversity we have in Prince George, B.C., and across Canada.”
