Come out to Apollo Beach this Saturday, March 4, to celebrate the MiraBay Dragon Boat Festival!
This weekend’s event is the Pan American Dragon Boat Association season opener, and it’s sure to be a full day of fun for the whole family. Viewers can enjoy five exciting dragon boat races from the best shoreline seats along the beautiful, calm waters of Mira Bay.
Between races, festival-goers can grab a bite to eat from a number of local food vendors, then stroll through the festival to pick up handmade and locally sourced fashion accessories, bath and beauty products, home goods, foodstuffs and more. Don’t forget to stop by for the plank challenge — this year’s contestants will have stiff competition from our record-holder and two-time champion, who lasted over 12 minutes at last year’s event.
We’re looking forward to a beautiful day of mingling with our neighbors, cheering on the local Leviathans and even meeting a few fellow paddlers. Full details on the day’s events can be found below or on the race website. We hope to see you all there!
