Dragons have been around for a long time, everybody has heard of them but how many people are aware of Dragon Boats?
The Dragon Boat Festival comes to Oriental, North Carolina on August 11 – 12th and is expected to draw large crowds.
Come enjoy a fun filled weekend ( two days) on the water with entertainment for friends, family, co-workers and everyone who visits.
But the heck what are Dragon Boats?
Dragon Boats are the world’s largest flat water racing canoes, propelled by a crew of 20 plus a drummer and a steersperson. Teamwork is everything in dragon boat racing.
Dragon Boat paddlers move in unison, combining strength with teamwork in a boat whose elaborate design originates in ancient China. Synchronicity is more important than strength.
In addition to the dragon boat racing other activities will include; greatfood, great music, kids activities, a parade of teams and much, much more for friends and family alike.
