More than 3,000 paddlers will churn up the water as thousands of spectators line the banks of Cockle Bay to watch the spectacular 12 metre long Dragon Boats battle it out.
Originating in the rivers of Southern China as a way to encourage prosperous rains, today Dragon Boat racing has evolved into a fast-paced water sport. Feel your heart race in time with the onboard drummers, and marvel at fierce dragons slicing through the water. Arrive early on Saturday morning to experience a traditional Taoist Eye Dotting Ceremony to ensure a safe weekend of racing.
See the huge inflatable St.George Happy Dragon floating in the harbour as you cheer on the paddlers.
