Dragon Boat Races in Grace Harbor

August 11 - 12, 2017

Once again, River Dunes Grace Harbor will serve as the location for the 2017 Dragon Boat Races.  This colorful event features teams of racers from organizations and communities all over the Southeast.  Dragon Boats are the world’s largest flat water racing canoes, propelled by a crew of 20 rowers, plus a drummer and a steersperson.  Teamwork is everything in Dragon Boat racing, and synchronicity outweighs strength.  In addition to the dragon boat racing, other activities will include great food, music, kids activities, a parade of teams and much, much more for friends and family.

Last year, the team from River Dunes won the Team Spirit Award.  This year, they are going for the gold!
