Dragon Boat Races 2005

Held at beautiful Marine Stadium, Belmont Shore, CA Home of Olympics scull racing.

Dragon Boats are an ancient Chinese Tradition. Dragon Boat racing is now international in scope and may some day be an Olympic event. Dragon boats are similar to racing sculls but wider and have the head and tail of the traditional Chinese Dragon. They are two man wide as opposed to one man wide sculls.

This is an all weekend festival complete with Chinese Dragons and Asian entertainment as seen below.
