The 135th Bok Kai Festival, celebrating the Year of the Ram, will take place March 21 and 22, 2015. The Bok Kai Parade committee will host the parade on Saturday, March 21 @ 11 am, catch the action at 2nd and 'C' Streets. The Marysville Chinese Community hosts and sponsors Bomb Day on Sunday, March 22 @ 4 pm, the intersection of 1st and 'C' Streets.
The heart of the festival is the now-restored
Bok Kai Temple, built in Marysville, California's historic Chinatown in 1888.
The popular parade, some say the
oldest continuous one in California, features a variety of floats,
cultural performances, and, of course, the famous Bok Kai parade dragon!
