We are about a month away from one of the biggest event of the year in the Village of Port Jefferson at the Mayor Garant Harborfront Park. We’ll be kicking off the Dragon Boat Race Festival on Saturday, September 17th, starting at 8:00 a.m. with the introduction ceremony. The Dragon Boat races begin at 9 a.m. (but do check back here for any last minute changes or visit our Facebook page here)
This year we made quite of few of changes for our upcoming event, one is we increased the amount of teams this year, went from 22 teams last year to now 32 currently… we have room for one more team. The entertainment this year will be another spectacular one, one that cannot be missed! Again, we’ll be serving Asian cuisine from our local restaurants, and Asian themed vendors.
If you are part of a team that is already signed up for this event, make sure you have signed up for the team practices. Visit the High-Five Dragon Boat’s website for the schedule (your team captain should be advising you and updating you with all the information).
