The Sikh community will celebrate the first anniversary of the Sikh Centre in Anderson and the Sikh New Year with a Vaisakhi Festival on Saturday.

The public is invited to the center at 5400 Sikh Centre Drive from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. to experience several aspects of Sikh culture firsthand.

"People will enjoy learning about the traditional Sikh clothing and food. We can help them with putting on a turban and to understand why they do it," Amarjit Singh said. "We want to increase awareness of Sikh culture and work as a bridge between other communities in Shasta County."
