10th Annual Walgreens Orlando International Dragon Boat Festival presented...
Sat, October 14, 2017, 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM EDT
The Walgreens Orlando International Dragon Boat Festival returns to Bill Frederick Park at Turkey Lake in Orlando Florida on Saturday, October 14th 2017, 9am-4pm. This event brings together culture, sport and international flavors that blend a 2,500-year-old tradition with the fun and excitement of an outdoor festival.
Twenty paddlers move in unison, combining strength and teamwork in a boat whose elaborate design originates from ancient China. Social groups and businesses alike embrace the sport because it builds camaraderie, forms connections and promotes healthy lifestyles.
Admission to the event is free; races will begin at 9:00am and will continue throughout the day. Festival grounds will offer a variety of activities for all participants and spectators. There will be Asian Cultural performances throughout the day and the Walgreens Health & Wellness Village features exciting products and services to assist in leading a healthy lifestyle. Grab a bite from one of the Food Trucks, enjoy watching the races in the Beer Garden or shop in the Marketplace. Families can bring their children to enjoy games and activities in the interactive Kids Zone. A portion of the proceeds of the event will be donated to UF Health Cancer Center at Orlando Health.
