Louisville Dragon Boat Festival

“Ancient legends tell of ‘dragon’ boats used in religious ritual, ceremony and benediction to the rain gods,” according to the festival website. But this weekend, they’re going to be used for racing! Join in this colorful spectacle that requires strength, endurance, skill and teamwork. Individuals can register with a team online or the day of this 300-meter race down the Ohio River. A portion of the proceeds going to local charities, and equipment and training is provided for the teams, as well as a free “Try A Practice” for beginners.
