Miami International Dragon Boat Race
Saturday, November 8th from 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
3601 Rickenbacker Causeway Key Biscayne, FL
Virginia Key waters will be awash with 42-foot dragon-shaped canoes this Saturday for the Miami International Dragon Boat Festival. The races recognize more than 2,000 years of Chinese history as they blend folk tradition with modern recreational sport and community engagement. According to ancient Chinese mythology, the dragon signifies control over rain, rivers, and seawater; therefore, a dragon’s head and tail were considered the mightiest addition to any rowing boat. Experienced or novice racers aged 13 and older are welcome to participate. Each team is provided with the appropriate gear and two complimentary training sessions upon registration. A predominantly social activity, it’s easy to master and fun to watch. The races, which are recognized as a national holiday in China, are free to watch from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Crews of 20 co-workers, friends, or relatives will navigate to the finish line through the beautiful expanse of Miami Rowing Club’s basin (3601 Rickenbacker Cswy., Miami).
