2014 Oriental Dragon Boat Festival

America’s fastest growing water sport returns for its fifth year in Oriental, North Carolina on August 8-9, 2014.

This event will be two days of a fun filled weekend on the water with entertainment for friends, family, co-workers and everyone who visits.

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 crew of 20 plus a drummer and a steersperson. Teamwork is everything in dragon boat racing. Synchronicity is more important than strength.

Hope to see you there!
