The 134th Bok Kai Festival, celebrating the Year of the Horse, will take place March 1 and 2, 2014. The Bok Kai Parade committee will host the parade on Saturday, March 1 @ 11 am, catch the action at 2nd and 'C' Streets. The Marysville Chinese Community hosts and sponsors Bomb Day on Sunday, March 2 @ 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!
