Clans of dedicated participants undergo a week of training in order to prepare for the Dutchess Dragon Boat Race and Festival. Ten teams made up of 16 paddlers, one drummer, and a professional, experienced steerer, will compete for glory on the Hudson River. Spectators will have the opportunity to visit the day-long Asian Cultural Festival which will include games, dancing, souvenirs, and food and drink.

The proceeds of the race and festival will benefit non-profits Arts Mid-Hudson and the Miles of Hope Breast Cancer Foundation.

The Dutchess Dragon Boat Race and Festival takes place on Saturday, July 25 from 9am-3pm at HRRA Community Boathouse, Poughkeepsie.
