Bao Sheng Gong festival going on all this week


#1

That’s the temple right next to the Confucius Temple, which is dedicated to Bao Sheng Da Di (Great Life-Preserving Emperor), whose birthday is on lunar 3/15. Religious activities will include things like stilt-walking, fire-breathing, and sword-swallowing. Check their website:

so which is it? April 6 or Saturday?
(I think lunar 3/15 is Wednesday, April 16)


#3

sorry, false alarm. Girlfriend misled me! (As Adam said to God.) Here’s their website. Saturday evening is opera, then it looks like folksy stuff every day until the big days next week:
