Annual Shoals Dragon Boat Festival

Sep 28th8am
Florence

Traditional Hong Kong style dragon boats are 46-feet long, with 10 seats and 20 paddlers. A drum seat in front of the first two paddlers (seated beside each other) holds a drummer  you want the smallest, loudest, most rhythmic person you can find. A steerer guides the boat with the steering oar in back. These 22 people make up a dragon boat team. The stroke is unlike any other (the most similar is outrigger canoe) and taught in practice. All ages, skill levels and physiques perfect their stroke and timing for the ultimate teamwork experience! Come watch the fun!
