YUBA CITY, Calif. — Around the first weekend of November, Yuba City is brimming with guests at their annual Sikh festival, Nagar Kirtan.

In what's touted as the largest celebration of Sikhs in the United States, more than 100,000 members of the Sikh community flood into Yuba City for the celebration every year for the fireworks, bazaar, and parade.

"Because of the number of Sikhs and because of the high attendance of Sikhs who will be there, it's actually pretty beautiful to see how one community can really come together to celebrate," said Inderpreet Kaur, a spokesperson for the Sikh Coalition.
