The National Harbor Dragon Boat Races are being held this summer, celebrating Asian culture and bringing a family-fun event to the Washington DC area. The regatta is an open competition, seeking participants of ages 12 years of age or older. No experience is required and training sessions are being offered. Dragon boat racing is an important part of the Chinese traditional culture, dating back more than 2,300 years. With its location along the Potomac River and convenient access to downtown Washington, National Harbor is a perfect location for this event.

Date and Time: August 23, 2014, 9 a.m.-4 p.m.

Location
National Harbor Waterfront. The mixed-use community in Prince George’s County, Maryland is home to hotels, restaurants, retail stores, condominiums, a full-service marina, a convention center, and commercial office space.
