How appropriate that Oriental, whose town symbol is the dragon, is hosting the 2010 Oriental Dragon Boat Festival.  The Festival will be held this year on August 20th and 21st and features Dragon Boat races, entertainment, parade of teams and great food.


The race should be interesting and exciting.  Dragon Boat paddlers move in unison, combining strength with teamwork in a boat whose elaborate design originates in ancient China.  Dragon Boats are the world’s largest flat water racing canoes, propelled by a co-ed crew of 20 plus a drummer and a steersperson.  Teamwork is everything and synchronicity is more important than strength. 

Come join us for yet another fun filled weekend on the water!
