Dragon Races in Lake Lure Saturday

dragonboatLAKE LURE – Today in Morse Park on Memorial Highway in Lake Lake, teams from across the region paddle 250 meters down the Rocky Broad River in 30-foot-long dragon boats dressed out in dragon heads, tails and scales all in the name of children’s charities. The day features the parade of the dragons, a family friendly festival, food and live music.

Each team is guaranteed three races. The times from the Heat 1 and Heat 2 will be averaged and the resulting time will be used to bracket the races for the final. Once the final races have been run, the times from all three races will be averaged and the resulting time will be used for finishing order and awarding.
