Sikh Parade Abbotsford

I was fortunate today to stumble across a Sikh parade today here in Abbotsford BC and it was such a beautiful thing - a rainbow of colour, smorgasbord of free foods and stimulating music that I thought I'd like to share my photos.  I was so impressed with how close this community is, with entire families from seemingly ancient (but quite agile) seniors right down to the cutest babies and everyone in between.  I was astonished to see how seemingly every third household gave their driveways and front yards over for the preparation and serving of the most delicious vegetarian cultural food, and also it seemed that each station was sponsored by different businesses.  

I admit pakoras are on my favourites list and to see these mountains of them being prepared and served fresh made me weak at the knees...
Truly - a mountain.  Spicy but not too and filled with potato chunks and vegetables.  
Chai tea, pop, juice, water and coffee - all served with a smile.
Lovely traditional dress - every colour of the rainbow, so feminine. 

The temple.
A sea of happy revellers.  Thank you for such a wonderful day!
