The Sikh community from California has championed on the 2nd Sikh float titled “A Sikh-American Journey”. The float has a flower carousel, peacocks, a carving of the State of Punjab in the back, and a Sikh horeseman leading the way.

It aims to introduce Sikh culture to fellow American, enhancing its the wider understanding.

The idea for a Sikh-American float at the Rose Parade sprang from a mission undertaken by Rashpal Singh Dhindsa, founder and president of the United Sikh Mission, to spread more public awareness about Sikh Americans and the Sikh faith, which began in India.

It will spread the message about positive contributions of Sikhs.
