Held in Cary, North Carolina, the Triangle Area Dragon Boat Festival celebrates the diverse cultural history and traditions of the local Asian community.
While the race itself is the main event, guests can also explore Asian culinary culture by sampling a variety of authentic eats.
The paddlers paddle in unison to a drummer's beat in a long, narrow boat decorated at bow and stern with a dragon's head and tail.
It's a team sport in its purest form that encompasses the elements of power, speed, synchronization and endurance.
