Join us for a fun day filled with fleets of colorful Dragon Boats as they race to the beat of a Chinese Drum to help raise money for the Children's Hospital. Cheer on teams of wildly dressed teams, working with adrenaline-pumping action to the finish line. Teams rave about the excitement, friendly competition and community spirit surrounding the sport. Each team gets into the spirit by choosing a theme and decorating their tents, crafting their custom T-shirts or costumes to add to the excitement.
Teams of 20 paddlers, a drummer and a race steerer race in an authentic 46-foot long dragon boats. All skill levels and physiques can participate,15 years or older, making it the ultimate team building sport. A bit of practice working on synchronizing strokes can send your team into first place.
The 11th Annual Children’s Hospital Dragon Boat Festival showcases competitive community and corporate teams racing for the title of Grand Champion.
Each team is encouraged to set a fundraising goal of $3000 or more, about $143 a team member.
