Where: Telford Lake at the Leduc Boat Club, Leduc , Alberta, ,
When: Friday, August 16, 2019 – Sunday, August 18, 2019

Dragon Boat racing for fun, sport and recreation. The festival showcases Asian and multiculturalism in the Edmonton area.
Grab your spot in a boat or come cheer the participants at Telford Lake, Leduc.

Each dragon boat is led by a drummer who produces a rhythmic drum beat, or the boat’s “heartbeat”, which keeps the paddlers in sync as they battle neck-and-neck with their rivals. The boats which participate in the competitions are long wooden boats with bows  shaped as dragon figures according to ancient Chinese tradition. Teams take great pride in decorating their dragon boats to intimidate the competition. Pick your favourite team early and cheer them on right to the finish.
