3rd Dubai Int'l Dragon Boat Festival

Posted by Kero at Monday, April 05, 2010
We had another thrilling family day out last Friday as we watched for the first time, the Dragon Boat Festival at DFC Marina. Enthusiasts of the sports competed for two days, following the success of two previous years. There were also plenty of off-shore activities such as bouncy castles and arts & crafts for kids to ensure all families and friends enjoy a day at the Festival Marina.

Here are some of my snapshots.

Dragon Boating is a thrilling water sport full of adrenaline, sportsmanship, strategy and technique.


It is also a sport that is about positive team spirit, being healthy, making friends and having fun.



Companies were encouraged to enter their corporate teams for this year's festival early, due to the enormous popularity of this growing sport.

After watching half-day of the race, we went on to visit the Art Car Festival which i will be sharing next week. Thankies for the visit!
