Cheer your heart out at this spectacular summer festival as the splash of water and the beat of drums fill the air around Henderson Lake.
The festival’s main event – Dragon Boat Racing – is half athletics, half theatre, where teams of 18 – 20 people fly across the water in dragon-shaped boats. More than a race, the Dragon Boat Festival features a variety of events, like beer gardens, on-stage entertainment, vendor stalls and even a kid’s zone. It’s a veritable hive of activity around Henderson Lake.
