Dragon boats are 40-foot human-powered canoes decorated with ornate Chinese dragon heads. Led by the rhythmic beat of a drum, teams consisting of 20 synchronized paddlers, one drummer, and one steersperson race the canoes 500m down the river. This Saturday, July 30th from 8 a.m. to 4 you’ll be able to see these boats race at Rockketts Landing. Bear in mind that teams range from the hardcore athletes to the weekend warriors.
