Dragon Boat Festival

This weekend I went to the Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival, an annual event in Flushing Meadows Corona Park Queens. The festival includes boat races and lots of food plus traditional Chinese dance and music, martial arts and other cultural events. You can read more about the festival here. It was a lot of fun!

They have dragon boat races here as well, but it's done in the open ocean.
