2005 was the last time the Grey Cup was hosted in our beautiful city of Vancouver. Ladysmith’s very own beauty Pamela Anderson may have been the Grand Marshal of the parade, but we made sure to represent South Asians by participating in the Grey Cup Parade ourselves with. Nine Dholi’s and thirteen Bhangra dancers danced, drummed, and marched through the streets of downtown Vancouver.
Well the Grey Cup Parade is back in Vancouver in 2011. Glee star Cory Monteith is replacing Pamela Anderson this year, but South Asian Arts will be participating once again. This time, in a much bigger way!
Check out the video below from 2005 for a glimpse of what you might see this year!
