The Dragons are back this weekend, August 21!
Once a year, the fine people of Montgomery, AL converge on the beautiful Riverfront to either take part in, or view an amazing spectacle. The event is known as Dragon Boat races. It breeds a fierce competition from various areas around the city. The local Fire Fighters, Police, Businessmen and women, College folks, workout groups, and many other avenues of people, all competing for two goals. The Grand Championship Trophy and FUN!. All this while supporting the missions of our two local beneficiaries, Bridge Builders Alabama and Rebuilding Together Central Alabama. This year, over 80 teams are registered to compete.
Riverfront Park will be alive with music, entertainment, and over 30 local vendors, artists, and exhibitors while teams compete on the water in view of over 8,000 spectators!
