2018 First National Bank Bayou Desiard Dragon Boat Festival

Bayou DeSiard
3430 Loop Road, Monroe

Come out and enjoy the exciting Dragon Boat Festival and watch the boat races! There will be children’s activities, plus food and drinks. Find a spot to watch the races as canopies, tents and spectators line the banks of the bayou to enjoy the lively atmosphere. A family health fair will be present and the festival will aim to raise money to support the Children's Coalition for Northeast Louisiana. Businesses, fitness groups, youth organizations, and individuals ages 12+ can sign up to compete in the Dragon Boat races. This year, you can put together your own full or half team, buy a single seat to become part of a new team or sponsor a youth team from our regional schools. Through team building and working together, 20 rowers race in 40-foot dragon boats accompanied by the beat of their team drummer. The three fastest teams take home medals and bragging rights.
