Dragon Boat Festival

When: Sat., July 12 2014

For the last 17 years, the Dragon Boat races have painted Lake Banook a nice shade of rainbow every summer in the name of the Nova Scotia Amateur Sport Fund. But dragon boating has been a Chinese tradition for over 2,000 years, taking place in countries across the world. The Dartmouth version of the race gathers teams of 22---and you don't have to be an expert paddler--- to put their best stroke forward in the name of charity. But it's not just about the race. Once you're done cheering, or paddling, there's a full day of activities to enjoy, from food to Chinese cultural entertainment, games, kids' stuff and vendors. —Allison Saunders
