Dragon Boat Festival

Starts: 2011-06-01 Ends: 2011-06-11

The dragons are coming!  Sign up your team today.  The 13th Annual Sault Ste. Marie Dragon Boat festival in support of the Sault Ste. Marie Family YMCA and Sault Search and Rescue is approaching.  Gather your friends and register your team today.  This year's festival will be held on Saturday, June 11, at Bellevue Park on Topsail Island.  Teams of 20 people, plus a drummer who keeps the beat of the stroke and a steerperson, will paddle Dragon Boats down the St. Mary's River in a series of fun and friendly races.  Dragon boats are very stable, and the races only two or three minutes, making it a perfect event for everyone.  This year's festival has grown to include a wide variety of entertainment for the community from live music to a children's activity zone, including the Steelworker's Inflatable Fun carnival, face painting, crafts, and games.  Come and showcase your talents.  Want to sign up a team or need more information?  Contact the Festival Office (YMCA) at 705-945-5178 ext 228 or email the Festival Office .
