The 133rd Bok Kai Festival, celebrating the Year of the Snake, will take place March 16 and 17, 2013. The Bok Kai Parade committee will host the parade on Saturday and the Sahm Fow Chinese Community hosts and sponsors Bomb Day on Sunday, March 17, 2013.
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!
