Selma became a little more colorful Sunday as thousands of Sikhs dressed in traditional Indian clothing walked through the streets to celebrate the 309th anniversary of their religion.

Sarees and turbans of every color could be seen on the women and men gathered at the Sikh Center of the Pacific Coast on Highland Avenue in Selma as people filled themselves with free food, worshipped in the temple, and browsed through the booths selling various items.

The event marked the last day in a three-day celebration that began on April 11 with continuous prayers for the well-being of all mankind.
