2015 Oriental Indoor Dragon Boat Festival
February 21, 2015 @ 12:00 PM - 4:00 PM$8 – $240
Come and Race in the FIRST Indoor Oriental Dragon Boat Festival. We promise,
good food, safe paddling, and a WET BUT FUN event. To date, annually, this event
occurs in Winnepeg and Manitoba Canada, but THIS is the “FIRST TIME” for a
United States Indoor Dragon Boat Festival and Race. It only makes sense!
Oriental, the Orient of Eastern North Carolina it is said that dragons live.
It is the place where you would expect to find a “battle of the paddles” in a
dragon boat in a SWIMMING POOL of water between two teams of paddlers.
It is something that has to be seen to be believed!! Paddlers in the Indoor Canada
races say it is a great experience. It’s a chance to brush up on dragon boat skills,
have some laughs and lead your teams to victory on the water – even if it’s COLD outside!

each category in their respective classes then compete against each
other until an overall winner in each class is determined.
