Event Description

2013 Central Florida Dragon Boat Festival Part of 2000 Year Tradition

 

The Rotary Club of Lake County Golden Triangle’s 11th annual Central Florida Dragon Boat Festival will be held April 5 & 6, 2013 at Wooton Park, Tavares, Florida on beautiful Lake Dora. Teams needed.

 

Tavares, FL, USA:  Watch teams of 20 people row on Lake Dora in the Rotary Club of Lake County Golden Triangle’s 2013 Central Florida Dragon Boat Festival. Teams from all over the world row 30-foot long boats decorated with dragonheads to the beat of a drummer. Worldwide, over two million people participate in one of the fastest growing water sports today. The team from Taiwan travels 8,500 miles to participate.

 

The challenging competition begins at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, April 6, 2013 at Wooton Park in Tavares, FL. The schedule for the day is filled with all types of entertainment including, the Dragon/Line Dance, Martial Arts demonstrations, Chinese acrobats, the Taiko Drummers, and other live entertainment. Lunchtime will feature the annual egg roll eating contest, the closing ceremonies occur at 5:15 p.m. Families will find lots of action, and sun filled sights throughout the park and lake.

 

Teams are gathering the night of April 5, 2013 for the pre-race Awakening of the Dragon Ceremony and a performance by the Orlando Taiko Drummers followed by spectacular fireworks over Lake Dora. Dinner tickets are $10 online, while supplies last.
