Dragon Boat Festival
When: June 14 through June 15, 2014
Where: Charles River
In 1979, the Boston Dragon Boat Festival became the first event of its kind in the country. Since that time, it has grown into a hugely popular event in Boston that draws attendees from all over New England and beyond. The Dragon Boat Festival is a celebration of the diverse heritage of New England’s Asian community, and this event in Boston features live performances, food, arts & crafts and, of course, the dragon boat races.
More than 60 teams are registered to compete in this year’s races, which take place in Hong-Kong-style dragon boats. The races take place on the Charles River beginning at Pierce boathouse at MIT. While the races are popular and fun to watch, they are only one highlight of this event in Boston.
Vendors line the streets selling handcrafted items, clothing, and more. Food trucks offer many opportunities to enjoy a taste of a variety of Asian foods. Several live performances delight the crowds. Some of the performances at the 2014 Dragon Boat Festival are the Chinese Waist Drum Dance, the Dragon Dance, Chinese Traditional Dance, Tae Kwon Do Demo, Bhangra & Bollywood Dances, and much more.
Organizers say that the Dragon Boat Festival has something to interest all ages, and it is a wonderful choice for a family outing. Those planning to attend this event in Boston should book their Guest Room at a Boston Hotel like The Boston Park Plaza Hotel.
