What is Dragon Boating? “Dragon boating originated in ancient Chinese culture, but since the 1970’s it is the fastest-growing, international, team water sport today..”. “Boats consisting of twenty paddlers and one drummer race to cross the finish line with the fastest time. Dragon boating encourages a team spirit through the drive of competition and exhilarating action”.
Purpose: “The purpose of the festival is to raise funds for Ground Zero in a cutting-edge and engaging way. The money raised through the Dragon Boat Festival enables Ground Zero to communicate the vision of the ministry to the public and to fund events for local teenagers, schools, youth pastors, and many others”.
