Showcasing the traditional art and sport of dragon boat racing, the 2016 San Diego Dragon Boat Festival is a one-of-a-kind experience. Enjoy a brilliant display of grace, strength and determination from the athletes, who power gorgeous boats designed to look like dragons. From 9 am to 5 pm on Saturday, May 7, teams of racers will board their colorful dragon-themed vessels and paddle to the sound of drums as they compete for glory. Back on land, you'll find a Pan-Asian celebration of culture and cuisine. Grab a bite to eat from a local food truck, and shop for dragon boat merchandise including tee shirts, paddles, paddle bags, hats and jewelry.
