Dragon boat racing is back! Early bird registration for the annual dragon boat race and community festival is now available through July 5th. Discounted boat team registration is $1,000 with payment plans available. After July 5th, team registration is $1,200 and includes only 1 practice. Registration for nonprofits, students, club teams and municipalities is $900 and individuals without a team is $65.
Dragons on the Rock is Saturday, September 18th from 9am-6pm at Traxler Park. The dragon boat race features 16-20 paddlers and 1 drummer in each boat, competing in heats throughout the day to determine the top 3 champions. All equipment and training are provided, as well as experienced staff to steer each boat, so no experience is necessary! All teams will participate in one mandatory hour-long practice session the week leading up to the event. Participants must be 12 or older and 3-4 extra team members are recommended as alternates. The top 3 placing race winners will receive medals and recognition during an award ceremony. Teams are encouraged to be creative with their attire… Especially the drummer! Drummers will have the opportunity to compete for prizes by showing off their costumes and talents during a drum competition.
Boat teams are encouraged to fund raise a minimum of $1,000 to receive extra perks including:
The VIP Experience
As well as a partial sponsorship (1 of 2) of a KANDU client or youth boat.
The top 3 fundraising teams will receive special recognition.
