In 2009, Great White North Communications (GWN) started the Major League Dragon Boat racing series. The series spans nine cities in North America and crew teams can participate in a 200 m, 500 m, 1000 m, and 2 k races. The event caters to first-time dragon boat racers and skilled crew teams. Teams earn prizes and trophies, as well as bragging rights for an entire year—until the next year’s event.
You’ll be surrounded by various vendors and constant entertainment as you navigate through the park. Visit the beer garden to grab your favorite brew and a delicious meal from one of the popular food trucks. If you bring children, take them to the Kids Zone between races so they can enjoy kid’s games and inflatable bouncers.
