Butte’s Chinese New Year Parade is Coming
Butte’s Chinese New Year Parade is Coming
Described as the shortest, loudest, and coldest parade in Montana, the annual Chinese New Year Parade is set to make its mark in Butte on Saturday, January 28th! The Mai Wah Society has been hosting this event for many years and is excited to continue the tradition with the Year of the Rabbit as the focus. The parade route begins at 3 pm in front of the Butte-Silverbow Courthouse (155 W. Granite) and will head east on Granite. The Butte High History Club has their work cut out for them as they will once again serve as dragon dancers during the Chinese New Year Parade in Uptown Butte. This is a hands-on event, so bystanders are encouraged to follow the dragon throughout the parade. If you'd rather sit back and observe the parade, that is highly encouraged, too. The Mai Wah Society (17 W. Mercury) will also host a reception following the parade.

Next Wednesday will mark the 125th Anniversary of the Butte-Silver Bow Chapter of DAR (Daughters of the American Revolution), an organization dedicated to promoting history education and patriotism in the community. DAR began in Washington, D.C., in 1890, with the Butte-Silver Bow Chapter hosting its first inaugural meeting on December 21, 1897. Their efforts were tireless and not unnoticed as they worked to improve traditions within the surrounding area. Over the years, they have been instrumental in partaking in Flag Day and Independence Day festivities. They have also helped many organizations, such as the Girl and Boy Scouts of America, The Salvation Army, and our local veterans. The local Daughters of the American Revolution have also helped support high school students with the DAR Good Citizen program and college-bound applicants with a University of Montana-Western DAR Scholarship.
