Peterborough's VIRTUAL Dragon Boat Festival
On Saturday, June 12, 2021, Peterborough’s Dragon Boat Festival will officially celebrate its 20th Anniversary! Although there won’t be dragon boats on Little Lake this year, organizers have come up with a race plan that will continue to support the Festival goals, of Fundraising, Awareness and Participation and they have simulated a number of features the physical festival typically offers. This year’s points based virtual races will include activities such as 20 minutes of physical activity, a colouring contest, submitting a cheer, or dressing up in your best pink outfit, just to name a few. Points will be awarded for participation, fundraising and/or submitting videos or photos. New this year, the Festival’s website will include an online store featuring Festival branded merchandise that would normally be available for purchase on race day.
