On Sunday, March 22, 2015, at 4pm, Bomb Day (Yee Yeut Yee), hosted by the Marysville Chinese Community, will take place in the heart of Marysville's historic Chinatown, at the corner of 1st and C Streets.  Handmade bombs will be lit and young men will scramble to catch the lucky rings.  The catching of the rings is open for viewing only; ring catchers are pre-selected through special invitation of the Chinese Community.  This unique event is the only one of its kind any where in the Americas and has happened annually since at least 1880.
