Rotary Club of Stratford Dragon Boat Festival
 
Join us on September 15th (rain or shine) when we host our 23rd annual Dragon Boat Festival. Held on Lake Victoria (Lower Queen’s Park) in Stratford, the one day festival has over forty teams participating in recreational Hong Kong-style races, including a 2000 meter finale featuring the top 8 teams. It’s fun and it’s exciting!  The Grand Champion and Community Division Champions are honoured with trophies at the closing ceremonies.  A special tribute to Breast Cancer survivors is done at 11 am.
 
Over 2,000 attend the Dragon Boat Festival each year to watch the races and enjoy the food, refreshments, entertainment and Kids’ Tent.  Bring the whole family.  The event is mostly accessible (please note that the washrooms are porta potties).
 
Proceeds from this event support Rotary community activities with over $800,000 raised to date!   Please follow us on twitter and Facebook - Twitter @rotarydragonbt Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/rotarydragonbt
