That's much better.

Ideally, the event would have lead you to learn vegetarianism is important to Sikhism, and, more specifically, why it is.

I may come across as somewhat pedantic, but I believe, possessing a sincere appreciation of a cultural event requires learning from it.

If I wanted to see a pun I would attend the parade

By the way, where do those people get the $$$ to supply people free food? If it came out of their own pocket, wonder how much. I often see jugs and jugs of empty gallons of milk near the stands (the American kirkland ones =)
The foods vegetarian because most Sikhs are vegetarian. Seva/community service is a big part of the Sikh religion and that includes serving food. Whole families got together and prepared food for the event. The South Asian has a lot of money and are always willing to use it to help others. Others may give you a hard time for your comments but at least you went.
Sikhs are like present day Jedi nights.

I am very uninformed with the traditions of this event. I do deserve the judgements for my comment. I find it amazing to see all the volunteers who made this massive event successful. Not only the hard work, sweat and effort but they put out a lot of money. By attending and watching some on stage performance plus seeing volunteers, I gain a vague idea of manpower. What I want to learn is a sense of finances that was donated along with labor.

I took some photos from today. It was my first Vaisakhi and it was great. I was full from the free food about 3 blocks in =D. People were friendly and welcoming. Had some people wanting to take photos with my sister, myself and my mom because we came out to embrace their culture. My sister thinks its probably cause my mom looked like a typical c-lai and they wanted to take a photo .











Didn't take much photos, too busy eating..

It is very family friendly. Good food.

I haven't found it very political but I'm a white chick so I'd probably the last person someone wants to discuss a separatist nation for Sikhs with.

Its not that expensive because most families work together when ever we do it, there are 4 familys pitching in to set up 1 stand.

1 year we went through 40 jugs of milk, making tea and soda (the pink crush or w.e its called) mixed with milk 50/50 tastes pretty good

yup, nothing is to make profit. one of the key aspects of Sikhism is equality, we have a duty to serve and take care of each other. If you're blessed, share your blessings and the smallest things in life make a big difference. Of course, there are some that abuse it and take advantage of it...

Wow, it appears as though Sikhs are like the South Asian version of Mr. Rogers. They project an air of pure-hearted decency. But when you enter the temples and look beyond the image...they're exactly what they appear to be. (thanks to XKCD for that quote)

From this thread, I believe the Sikh community to be committed to honour and righteousness. They obviously distance themselves from the glorification of terrorists and are creed and colour blind. I wasn't able to get to Vaisakhi this year but I will definitely go to both next year. Revsceners who are going, look for the one black guy.

as you already know the indo-canadian people are very proud and with that it doesn't matter what culture you are they will embrace you and proud to take you in and show you a glimpse of what they are so proud of. Growing up in Surrey I have had a number of family invite me over and feed me full meals being completely respectful even tho I was white. I think the parade is a great thing for Surrey/Canada being that multiculturalism is such an important aspect of everyday life and everyone's voice deserves a word to show what they are most proud of as a people coming from a different country.
