Want to participate in the coolest water sport this summer?! Of course you do!
Or if you are still wondering… What is Dragon Boat Racing? Equal parts sporting event and spectacle, dragon boating is a team sport that has its roots in ancient China. In the last 25 years, dragon boating has been revitalized, and is one of the fastest-growing water sports in the world. A dragon boat is a long, colorful boat, similar to a racing canoe. Each 42 foot long boat is propelled by a crew of 20 paddlers, a drummer and steer person. Races take place in heats on a 250 meter course, right off of City Deck.
No experience or athletic ability required. Only an open mind for some mind blowing fun!
You don't need to know how to paddle
