Sikh Float Rose Parade 2015
The float highlights Sikh American history in the United States, and over 125 years of contributions to American society. The Sikh American story speaks to American ideals, such as a dedication to family, hard and honest work, and an enterprising spirit.
The first structure is of the Stockton Gurdwara, the first Sikh house of worship that was established in the United States, 102 years ago. A cornucopia and a locomotive represent Sikh Americans who were laborers and farmers in 1903.
