WHAT’S A DRAGON BOAT RACE?
Imagine colorful 40 foot long boats with the head and tail of a dragon on each end, filled with 20 paddlers, a drummer, and steers person competing in a high energy race on the water. This athletic and cultural phenomenon originated over 2,000 years ago in Ancient China, and is presently the fastest growing sport in the world.
Last year’s proceeds from the Acworth-Cobb Dragon Boat Race & Festival benefited Loving Arms Cancer Outreach .

They are in their 14th year in the Atlanta area and have received approximately $31,000 in 5 years from the festival.
