Chinese New Year Parade
3:00 PM
Mai Wah Museum
Description:
The Mai Wah Society will once again host Butte America’s annual Chinese New Year Parade, which has been described as the shortest, loudest, and (sometimes) coldest parade in Montana. Celebrating the Year of the Dog, the parade will be held on Saturday, February 17, 2018. It will kickoff at the BSB Courthouse (155 West Granite, Butte) at 3:00 p.m.

Following opening remarks, the parade will head east on Granite Street with the dragon stopping along the route to bless business sponsors. Those in attendance are encouraged to follow the dragon and become part of the procession. Chris Fisk and his Butte High students will serve as dragon dancers this year. Following the parade, a reception with refreshments will be held at the Mai Wah Museum (17 West Mercury St).

Since it is the Year of the Dog, all friendly, well-behaved, and leashed dogs are welcome in the parade. If you bring your dog, please be prepared and clean up after your pet. While dogs are welcome along the parade route, they are not allowed in the Mai Wah Museum building.
