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. 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.
